Ok, no Academy Awards, but very nice Christmas romance
15 December 2018 | by cwg2005aSee all my reviews

Sometimes I think reviewers ignore the genre of film they are reviewing: this is a TV-Christmas movie, with thwarted romance, second chances ... all the plot items you expect when tuning in Hallmark or ION in December. Two things set this apart: the characters are likeable, or course, but there is no "bad" boyfriend or girlfriend here. Secondly, the ending, which I will no spoil, was completely unforeseen and done very well. By the way, the heaven gate-keeper was also done really well. Look, everyone knows they are making a cheesy film, and it takes work to play these characters "straight." So I applaud the actors and director. Bottom line: I liked it.
