Movie Review Friday: Christmas Lodge DVD


I love heart-warming Christmas movies. This is exactly what Christmas Lodge is, another film presented by the world-renown "Painter of Light" Thomas Kinkade. And you know that every time you observe a gorgeous Thomas Kinkade painting, you can't help but imagine what's going on in the surrounding he depicts... well, this film helps you imagine just that!

Christmas Lodge tells the story of Mary, a very successful businesswoman. However, success is also stressful on Mary, who often resorts to the mountains where she grew up to soak in the quietness and fresh air. While she is taking a brisk walk through the mountain forests, she meets a young girl, named Cathleen, who twisted her ankle and needs help getting back home. Mary is pleasantly surprised to find out that this girl is the daughter of an old friend, Jack, whom she grew up with. He currently lives at the "Christmas Lodge" that Mary's family resorted to every Christmas. Remembering Mary, Jack invites her in for the night. However, upon entering, Mary can't help but notice that the old lodge is running down. Certainly Jack and his rambunctious daughter can't fix the place up by themselves, so Mary puts her talents together to seek a contractor to raise funds for the renovation of the beloved lodge with the hope that it will be completed and ready for guests by Christmas. Can she fufill her sickly grandfather's wish for one last Christmas in the lodge, all the while finding a family in Jack and his daughter Cathleen?

I really liked the Christmas Lodge film! It was very heartwarming with its standout message of what a family is supposed to be. The plot was very creative, adding in humor and Christmas cheer into this romantic film.

Most importantly, however, the film is very family-friendly, even receiving a G-rating and a "Family Approved" seal from the Dove Foundation. This is definitely one great Christmas film, as I enjoyed the whole plot from start to finish.
