A Majestic Christmas

A Majestic Christmas – Romance at the Box Office!

December 2, 2018 3 Comments

The Hallmark originals have been a tradition for my mother and I ever since they began to release to DVD. But the real traditions began a couple of years ago when I was finally able to watch the new releases on television. This year, the same tradition rolls on. Their newest premiere, A Majestic Christmas, is our latest tradition.

A Majestic Christmas (2018) Hallmark Channel Review

Her dreams are what take Nell (Jerrika Hinton) to New York City. Ever since she saw the Empire State building as a kid, Nell has wanted one thing: to be an architect. Still, even as she works to build this dream with a prestigious NYC firm, something is missing.

Her latest project takes her back to her suburb hometown where her task is to create new plans for the historic theater. The problem is, the new owner Connor (Christian Vincent) isn’t one to preserve history. Instead he has plans for a sleek and modern Cineplex, which means the small town is a little salty he’s participating in their festivities!

The tropes are alive and well in this little romantic-comedy, but truth be told, I really don’t care. The most obvious of which is the girl-returns-home idea. Nonetheless, the characters are likable (I’m an easy-to-please girl) and of course, the family dynamics ensure that the values of this brand remain intact.

Fresh faces make up the cast. Jerrika creates a fun and personable heroine we root on. She’s not only easy to like, but also easy to relate to. She has dreams, but in pursuit of them, she often forgets what she really wants. Of course, this one also features a great supporting cast as is true of its many peers.

Although it’s the girl-returns-home plot, what I like about the way this trope is that it shifts the typical norms. There isn’t the usual “feeling” this genre specific plot can induce. So many of the stories that involve a character returning home to make a change in the town means the town will hate on said character. Here, things are much different. We get a small taste of this, but mostly, everything is fresh and different.

As usual, my conclusion is the same. If you enjoy seasonal movies or want a bit of cheer after a long week, A Majestic Christmas is sure to lift your spirits. It evokes a few old-fashioned vibes without being obvious, and features one of the sweetest “spontaneous” dance scenes I’ve seen since Once Upon a Prince (and you all know how I love this scene). In short, Hallmark gifts viewers another joyful offering.

Catch the premiere of ‘Majestic’ tonight (December 2nd) on Hallmark Channel.
