Finding Father Christmas – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Miranda has ignored Christmas every year since her mother died, on stage, performing A Christmas Carol 20 years ago (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). She believes this Christmas will be the same, until she gets a call from Rick. Rick still works at the theater where Miranda’s mother, Eve, died and found some of her things. Miranda picks up her mother items and starts to look through them. She finds old clothes, photos, and jewelry. Of all the items, she does not recognize 1 photo. It has a man dressed as Santa and a little boy sitting on Santa’s lap. Also, it has “Carlton Heath, VT” written on the back. Curious about her mother’s past and the father she never knew, Miranda decides to go to VT and see if she can find the boy in the photo, more about her mother, and possible her long lost father. The town of Carlton Heath are more than happy to help.
Based on the book, Finding Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn, this heartwarming tale is different because there isn’t a “bad guy”, just a woman trying to find who she truly is by looking through her mother’s past (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). Once she is close, she starts to worry about the impact it will have on the others around her in this wonderful town. You may be able to pick parts of the ending but not the full explanations. It would be great to see if the rest of the books get made by Hallmark. With raunchiness on full display these days, it’s nice to have a movie the whole family can watch and love.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
