At the invitation of an estranged relative, a young woman travels with her niece and nephew to a castle in Europe for Christmas, where she unwittingly falls for a dashing Prince.
Raising two children by yourself isn’t easy, but Jules Daly is discovering that being the sole guardian of her deceased sister and brother-in-law’s children is doubly difficult. As if dealing with the kids’ first Christmas without their parents isn’t hard enough, Jules loses her job, the nanny quits, her teenage nephew Milo steals a video game, and Milo and his 7-year-old sister Maddie are repeatedly bickering. A knock on the door brings an offer of a holiday out of the country at Castlebury Hall, the mansion owned by the children’s grandfather Duke Huntington. Jules hesitates because the Duke in the past wanted nothing to do with her sister or his grandchildren, but eventually comes to a decision the threesome has little to lose. When they arrive, the Duke isn’t exactly bursting with goodwill and holiday spirit, and Jules’s outspokenness combined with the children’s wild ways threaten to make a bad situation even worse. But surprisingly, disrupting everyone’s routines proves a powerful catalyst for positive change. The opulent mansion and breathtaking countryside provide a beautiful setting for the film, and Katie McGrath, Sam Heughan, and Roger Moore portray their characters well. At the same time as the circle of relatives’s difficult situation is relatively believable, the resolutions come far too easily. Nonetheless, the sentiment that the bonds of love and circle of relatives can overcome even the strongest adversity resonates at any time of the year. (Ages 7 and older) –Tami Horiuchi
