Christmas should be a time of joy and family traditions but this Christmas should especially be a happy one, and Jules Daly (McGrath) is determined to give that to her niece and nephew. Since her sister and brother-in-law died the year prior, Jules has been trying her best to make a new home for these kids who she now looks on as her own but... Milo (Travis Turner) is a teenager who doesn't want his aunt to assert a parental authority in any part of his life while young Maddie is a seven-year-old who probably won't even remember her parents as she grows up. Just after she loses her job, a proper English butler, by Paisley Winterbottom (Miles Richardson) shows up on Jules doorstep. He has come to the states as a representative of the Duke of Castlebury Hall (Roger Moore) in order to persuade Jules to bring her niece and nephew to England in order to visit their grandfather. Unhappy about the situation, Jules refuses because she cannot see subjecting the kids to a visit with the royal in-laws who refused the existence of their son following his choice to marry a commoner - Jule's sister. After thought, Jules has a change of heart, and off the trio goes to England to spend Christmas with dukes and duchesses - and even a prince in the form of Uncle Ashton (Sam Heughan).
Confession time: I absolutely adored this movie.Read more ›
At the castle it appears that the old gentleman, the duke, is not as near death's door as had been implied and Jules begins to wonder why they were summoned in the first place.
Now, if you can suspend disbelief and just enjoy the fairy tale, it is good family fun, with a little romance thrown in. You won't have to cover your ears or hide your eyes, just relax and let the Cinderella story unfold in the magical setting. I admit that the storyline was a little trite to me--stuffy, titled family turned on its ear by an outspoken, unpretentious American with cute children in the mix. The servants are all charmed by them, and there is a very predictable outcome. But it is well-played and heartwarming. Grandpa (Roger Moore) even softens and allows a Christmas tree, which he ultimately helps decorate. There are ballet lessons, archery instructions, a fox-hunt that isn't really a fox-hunt, and a Christmas Eve Ball, where some social climbers get their comeuppance. Don't over-analyze the believability, just enjoy a good, clean holiday-themed story with emphasis on the importance of family.
