Quick Non Spoiler Review: If you’re looking for a sweet Christmas movie that will really pull on your heartstrings, this one is it. The characters have a genuine chemistry, but the heartache they’ve been dealt with in their past is keeping them from finding love with each other. Wagner and Macfarlane do a great job of portraying authentic emotions that truly capture what their characters are struggling with, and you’re really rooting for the two of them to end up together because you just feel how they both need the other so much, even if they won’t admit it. Meanwhile, Lauren Guci was phenomenal as Jordan, Megan’s son. He really nailed the part and played his role with authenticity, coming across as a good-hearted kid who was struggling with some issues in life and just needs a little more freedom in his world.
