Dubbed as the “Queen of Christmas Movies,” Candace Cameron Bure returns in a new Hallmark original. The goal today is to convince you why you too should watch it with 3 reasons to “see Christmas Town.” First, we have to talk about its plot!
THE STORY: Lauren’s (Bure) dream is a simple but happy prospect. She wants the white picket fence and family. But when her boyfriend’s goals don’t align with hers, she leaves Boston to accept a new teaching job, furthering a career she does love. On route, she has a stopover in the tiny town of Grandon Falls, otherwise known as, Christmas Town.
While there, Lauren meets many of the residents in this happy, warm town, and feels a sense of welcome she never expects. But most unexpectedly, she discovers she shares a connection with this town that feels like a special kind of gift.
The Best 3 Reasons to See ‘Christmas Town’
1: [When] Frist Impressions Surprise You
Every single year there are those movies from this seasonal campaign that I peg as ones I won’t like as well, and this year, Christmas Town made the list. (It should be noted, this happened with Candace’s Christmas movie from last year too, and again, I was wrong.) I’m so pleased to be proven wrong because in my book, this is one of the more unique stories I’ve seen.
2: Foster Care
Speaking of unique, this is one that fits nicely with that description, especially for this network. How Lauren’s past ties in with her future brings the story full circle. It’s something I could say more about, but for fear of spoiling anything, all I’ll say is, it’s one sure to tug on those emotions.
3: [A] Talented Cast and Crew
Candace always plays an interesting character, but here she pulls double duty as an executive producer. Opposite her is Tim Rozon, an actor I’d never heard of, but I do like his character. You’ll also spy some supporting characters of familiar faces in this cast, all of whom produce a wonderfully entertaining and heartwarming film for us to enjoy.
Note: this film is a little bittersweet because of Lauren’s backstory. The film, to me, is more uplifting and “happy,” than it is sorrowful, but if you want more of a romantic-comedy over a drama, this one may not be your cup of tea.
Catch Candace Cameron Bure in Christmas Town, tonight, Sunday December 1, on Hallmark Channel.
Content: like anything from Hallmark, there’s nothing offensive to note. The films are TV-G or TV-PG, depending on the theme of the film; i.e. whether it’s more romantic-comedy or drama.
