A Song for Christmas (2017)

Country music's latest "It Girl," Adelaide Kay, has a hit single and is linked with a hot star. She should be overjoyed, but dislikes pretending she's in love. Even worse, her manager doesn't want her to write her own songs anymore.

Pop superstar Adelaide Kay is left behind in Preston, Virginia when her tour bus, controlling manager and entourage accidentally leave without her. She finds herself stranded in the freezing cold with no money, no phone and no plan. A local family, the Lapps, take her in. They know the true meaning of the season, even if they're close to losing their Christmas Tree farm. No one in the family recognizes Adelaide except Dillon, the oldest son--an emerging musician, hoping one day to follow his heart and move to Nashville. Adelaide enjoys the break from stardom and begins writing a new song with Dillon that shows her true voice, as opposed to that of her bubble-gum pop writers and manager. As Adelaide falls for Dillon, she realizes that their song has a chance at saving the farm. Written by Anonymous

When Addie and Emma look for the Lapp family Christmas tree they locate one that they need to look up to see the top, which visually appears to be about 4' taller than the characters. When they are carrying it back to the farm, it is smaller in height and diameter. The tree that is decorated in the house is similar in size to the one that was cut down. See more »

Don't we already have enough Christmas songs?...
9 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

This was actually one of the better Hallmark Christmas season movies that I have seen during the 2017 Christmas season.

Sure, it followed the generic and stereotypical formula that Hallmark use in every single one of their Christmas movies, but it just worked out better somehow in "A Song for Christmas".

A lot of credit for making this a good movie should be given to Becca Tobin for her performance in the movie, because she really carried this greatly.

While "A Song for Christmas" doesn't have the potential to become a Christmas classic, nor being a movie that you watch more than once, it is still beautiful enough to take the time and sit down with your loved ones to watch once during the yuletide seasons.
