The story is based on a Christmas experienced by Thomas Kinkade, the famed painter of light. Returng home from school for the holidays he learns that his Mother, (Marcia Gay Hardin) is about to lose the family home, a lovely, but time-worn cottage. Along with his brother Kinkade trys to raise the money needed to save the cottage by painting a mural of the town in time for Christmas celebrations.
We soon find out that Kinkade has a mentor, a famous artist played by Peter O' Toole. He loves Kinkade like a son, but beingn at the end of his life, and talent, does not seem to be able to help.
I'll say no more of the plot, but there are moments of humor, laughs and tears.
The Christmas Cottage is now a permanent part of my annual holiday viewing. Once you've seen it, I am sure it will be the same for you.
