An interesting family film, with a well crafted story and believable, interesting characters.
The Snow Report
There is a lack of snow until the very end of the movie when it arrives and looks stunning.
Santa does not make an appearance at in this movie.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
Appropriately festive throughout but not always christmassy. We get to see many festivals and they all look great. We do however get to see Christmas and it looks great.
Will It Make Me Cry?
A sad story at many times and quite emotional but there are clues at the start that all will be ok if your paying attention.
Kate Rusby is an unexpected highlight of the sound track which is well mixed and considered throughout.
Sam Elliott is excellent through and the real highlight of the movie.
It is a feel good story and the final scene is very well shot.
