After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven’t been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home… the only problem is someone else lives there now.
This heartwarming story reminds us about the importance of family and forgiveness. We often treat the people closest to us in the worst ways, don’t we? It’s so easy to let grudges and bitterness drive wedges in our relationships, but forgiveness brings hope and healing to those we love if we just let it in. The movie has a predictable happy ending, and I don’t want to give the ending away, but it’s one of those movies I would watch over and over again around the holidays.
I love that the story emphasizes that “family” can come in different forms, like in close relationships between friends. =) Some of the actors also sing in the movie, and they are all very talented. I love hearing and singing Christmas songs during this time of the year.
