Product Description

Christmas is right around the corner; and Jules Daly (Kate McGrath) is doing her best to create a loving home as new guardian to her mischievous niece and nephew. But when she loses her job and an exasperated nanny on the same day; a mysterious and unexpected invitation arrives a travel to Europe and spend a royal Christmas with the childrenas distant grandfather a the Duke of Castlebury Hall (Roger Moore)! Itas a new world for Jules and the children as they discover their new prim and proper surroundings in the castle; but soon laughter begins to echo in the once quiet halls; filling everyone with renewed hope and joy for the season. And when Jules captures the heart of the dashing Prince Ashton (Sam Heughan); both of their lives begin to change inunexpected ways! Featuring a faraway land; an enchanting romance; and the unbreakable bonds of family; this inspirational tale is sure to become a new holiday tradition!?

Raising two children on your own isn't easy, but Jules Daly is discovering that being the sole guardian of her deceased sister and brother-in-law's children is doubly difficult. As if dealing with the kids' first Christmas without their parents isn't hard enough, Jules loses her job, the nanny quits, her teenage nephew Milo steals a video game, and Milo and his 7-year-old sister Maddie are constantly bickering. A knock on the door brings an offer of a holiday abroad at Castlebury Hall, the mansion owned by the children's grandfather Duke Huntington. Jules hesitates because the Duke previously wanted nothing to do with her sister or his grandchildren, but eventually decides the threesome has little to lose. When they arrive, the Duke is not exactly bursting with goodwill and holiday spirit, and Jules's outspokenness combined with the children's wild ways threaten to make a bad situation even worse. But surprisingly, disrupting everyone's routines proves a powerful catalyst for positive change. The opulent mansion and breathtaking countryside provide a beautiful setting for the film, and Katie McGrath, Sam Heughan, and Roger Moore portray their characters well. While the family's difficult situation is fairly believable, the resolutions come far too easily. Nonetheless, the sentiment that the bonds of love and family can overcome even the strongest adversity resonates at any time of the year. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Usually I do not see the new seasonal movies that air on Hallmark channel (or any "cable" network) until the following year when - and if they release to DVD. In 2011, this film was released in the U.K. and Canada, and was one I REALLY wanted to see; it was my one "guilty pleasure" buy. It looked so sweet and because it starred Katie McGrath from "Merlin." Turns out despite the fact that I shouldn't have bought it, it was well worth it.

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.

Jules works in an antique shop and serves as legal guardian for her precocious 7-year-old niece and troubled teenage nephew, whose parents have died. When the movie opens with Jules losing her job, the nephew stealing from a store, and the niece running off the nanny, I wasn't sure this was the kind of holiday "cheer" I needed. But a knock comes at the door and there is the mysterious man whom we have seen watching her earlier in the day. We learn that Jules' deceased sister had married into nobility, but because she was without title, her father-in-law had disowned the couple. Now, supposedly near death, he wants to know his grandchildren and has sent the butler to fetch them to Castlebury Hall. Jules struggles with the decision of whether or not to go, but upon the arrival of the tickets for the trip in a rather timely manner, she takes that as a sign that they are to go.
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.

I loved this movie so much the first time I saw it on Hallmark Channel last year! These are the things I loved most about them: Jules thinking of her late sister and brother-in-law's children Milo and Maddie to take them to Castleberry to meet their paternal grandfather and their uncle. Maddie softening her grandfather's heart by giving him a hug when she first meets him, giving her grandfather the Christmas tree decoration that once belonged to his brother that follows to the whole family decorating the Christmas tree, and Maddie dancing with her grandfather at the Christmas Eve ball that shows both of them are having a most wonderful Christmas. My favorite scenes with Milo are when he and his uncle Aston are spending time together (kinda in a father-son bonding) when Aston helps Milo learn to let go of his anger by giving Milo an archery lesson talking about growing up Aston had plenty in common with Milo by both of them have gotten into plenty of fights. The most moving part of Aston and Milo together is when Milo finds his late father's bedroom and Aston tells his nephew that his late father's love will always be with him. My favorite scenes with Jules in it are when Jules first meets her late brother-in-law's brother Aston and she knows it is him right away. I also like when Aston gives Jules a dancing lesson doing the waltz. To me the most amusing part of the movie is when Jules teaches Aston how to jam with rock-n-roll music because it shows to me that is when they become best friends. The most romantic part (to me at least) is when at the Christmas Eve ball, the orchestra plays the song Aston plays on his violin earlier in the movie and he refers to it as his and Jules' song when they begin waltzing then Aston follows Jules telling her how he fell in love, and their first kiss.Read more ›
