"The Making Of ELOISE AT CHRISTMASTIME" -- A look at how this classic book was adapted for the screen.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It's tinsel and holly and "fa la la lolly" when Eloise lends her unique brand of holiday spirit to this made-for-television movie inspired by Kay Thompson's book of the same name. Sofia Vassilieva shines as ruckus-raising Eloise, who can simultaneously exasperate and exhilarate the genteel staff of New York's Plaza hotel. In the days before Christmas, Eloise learns that Rachel (Sara Topham), the daughter of Plaza owner Mr. Peabody (Victor A. Young), is returning after a long absence to marry mystery man Brooks Oliver (Rick Roberts). Eloise insists on helping with the Yuletide nuptials while plotting a matchmaking scheme of her own--to find true love for her best pal Bill (Gavin Creel), a free-spirited hotel waiter. Meanwhile, Eloise keeps busy sprinkling holiday mirth on everyone, including her beloved Nanny, played "rawther" marvelously by Julie Andrews. Whereas Eloise at the Plaza portrays the precocious 6-year-old as mostly mischievous, this film showcases her compassionate side which, together with the strong ensemble cast, offers plenty of Christmas cheer. Watch for the sizzling chemistry and musical talents of Topham and Creel. (Ages 5 and older) --Lynn Gibson

Product Description

The Plaza's most famous six-year-old girl returns for Christmas in this heartwarming family film based on the best-selling children's classic ELOISE AT CHRISTMASTIME. "I absolutely love Christmas!" exclaims Eloise (Sofia Vassilieva). So, with her "mostly companion" Nanny (Julie Andrews), Eloise sets off celebrating the season in her own irrepressible style. Whether it's helping coordinate a Christmas Eve wedding because "Getting married on Christmas Eve is the most romantic thing," shopping for the entire staff of the hotel, or helping a neighbor save her home, Eloise has a "to do" list as long as her Christmas list. With an all-star cast and an ending that will warm your heart, ELOISE AT CHRISTMASTIME is bound to become an instant holiday classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Divine December 12, 2004
Format:DVD
Eloise, she is such fun. And I wish that I could live in the Plaza and share her adventures, and be her 'Mostly Companion.' Eloise played by Sophia Vassilieva was a perfect choice and was absolutely divine. And of course Julie Andrews!!! She is wonderful!

Everyone, in this film, is just so wonderful, that you feel that you are there! Everything is realistic, but make believe at the same time! Eloise, the clever, bratty, fun, loveable, sweet, and so caring is just the character that little girls love!

This movie is about 4 really main characters: Eloise (of course), Bill (the waiter) Nanny (Nanny), and Rachel, (The Plaza owners daughter). Eloise becomes involved in matchmaking. When Rachel returns from college with her fiance, Eloise and her become friends. And she finds out that Rachel loved the plaza when she was her age. She also finds out that her and Bill are old sweethearts and still secretly in love, against the will of her father who wants her to marry someone of importance.

And Brooks, her fiance is in his opinion perfect. But Eloise discovers Brookes secret, and contrives plots to get him out of the way and to put Bill in his place. Whether it's being kidnapped, spying, or helping the awful Mrs. Thornton have a Merry Christmas, Kevin Lima makes Eloise shine in the true spirit of the holidays!

Merry Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eloise is such fun!! December 7, 2004
By Adorem
Format:DVD
Eloise is a six-year-old girl. While her mom travels the world, Eloise (Sofia Vassilieva) spends most of her time in New York City's Plaza Hotel, where she lives with her "mostly companion", rawther British Nanny (Julie Andrews). Eloise has quite the reputation at the Plaza; all of the employees know her routine daily adventures of curiousity and mischief.

Eloise at Christmastime is the second Wonderful World of Disney television movie adapted from Kay Thompson's popular line of picture books. Filmed directly after Eloise at the Plaza, this 2003 film retains director Kevin Lima and all of the relevant cast of its predecessor.

It's Christmastime in New York City, and Eloise anticipates her mother's return home. Meanwhile, in her ritual explorations, Eloise discovers a different return: the daughter (Sara Topham) of Plaza owner Mr. Peabody (Victor Young) has come home to be married on Christmas Eve to Brooks Oliver (Rick Roberts), a Harvard-educated young man that Eloise has her suspicions about.

Eloise's journeys around the Plaza also uncover that the crabby Mrs. Thornton's days at the Plaza may be numbered, though not as she first assumes. And the precocious girl later learns that her best friend and regular room service provider Bill (Gavin Creel), still has feelings for his ex-girlfriend, the soon-to-be-wed Rachel Peabody who he hasn't seen in years.

The film is comfortable in exploring the Plaza with the same pace and perspective of its rambunctious young matchmaker protagonist. It's never in any hurry to bring you the upbeat conclusion you seem to anticipate, instead choosing to bask in the drama and fun of Eloise's experiences.

From the title, you can imagine that Christmas figures largely in the film, and it does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The First February 19, 2005
Format:DVD
I can't say that I toatlly enjoyed the first Eloise made for T.V. movie by Disney but, my youngest cousin wanted to give this a go for family movie night around the holidays. I watch it and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it.

Little Eloise is done wonderfully by Sophia who plays the michviously little girl who just loves Christmas at the plaza. Eloise manages to change lives close to Christmas day having old friends re-connect as lovers and rescue a friend from a doomed marriage or help a grieving mother manage to stay at her home. Not to mention getting into plenty of trouble and buying heaps of presents. Eloise all in all has the life every little girl wants to have. I found myself dreaming about being at the Plaza at Christmastime myself.

My little cousin loved the movie and I enjoyed it myself. It's a perfect movie to add to your Christmas collection or just to watch with your kids. Right now, we're watching it in Febuary!!! It's a great treasure and I can only hope this isn't the last in the Eloise series.

I grew up reading the Eloise books and always loved them. We read those stories over and over and thought that Eloise and all of her antics were hillarious to the point that my sister and I wanted to BE Eloise. However, when my sister purchased this movie for my 3 year old daughter I was a little concerned. Though I love the Eloise stories, I didn't necessarily think that Eloise was the best role model for my impressionable young daughter. However, to my very happy surprise, Disney has managed to present an adorable, sweet, caring version of the little girl from the books, while still staying true to so many of her little quirks and mischief that make her so lovable and entertaining.

This movie is very well acted all around, especially by the Eloise and Nanny (Julie Andrews) characters, both of whom have a warmth and sweetness not evident in the book that only adds to movie version and makes it much more appropriate for kids. Purists of the book that are looking for pure sass and troublemaking in Eloise may thinik the movie too soft, but it is a perfect interpretation for family viewing.

This is a great movie that can be enjoyed not only at Christmas, but throughout the year!
