Hallmark's November Christmas Movie Review


November Christmas...A Hallmark Movie With A Message

Hallmark Hall of Fame's 241st presentation, November Christmas, had its world premiere when it aired last night. The movie is based on the story of a family struggling to deal with the illness of their young daughter. Their neighbors and, in the end, an entire town come together to help them in their time of need. It is a heartwarming film, which will pull on your heartstrings.

I cannot say it any better than the actress who played the mother in the movie:

"The story itself is about community," Sarah Paulson says, "about this small town and how everybody comes together for our daughter, so this child can have one day of complete happiness. It's a really beautiful, uplifting, heartwarming story."

November Christmas aired on the CBS television network on Sunday, November 28, 2010. Filmed in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada, it featured a cast that included John Corbett, Sam Elliott, Karen Allen, Sarah Paulson and Emily Alyn Lind.

November Christmas is based on a short story written by Greg Coppa and is not really a typical Christmas movie, as it takes place in August and includes the celebration of Halloween and Christmas in that season. It is, however, another quietly beautiful Hallmark movie with a theme that is certainly worthy of being celebrated in the Christmas season.

Can I Buy The Soundtrack For November Christmas?

The score or soundtrack of November Christmas was beautiful. Particularly noteworthy, at least for me, was the song sang by Celtic folk singer, Kate Rusby called, 'The Wild Goose.'

As far as I can tell, there is no movie score or soundtrack available for November Christmas. However, you can download Rusby's The Wild Goose from Amazon or you can buy Kate Rusby's album '10,' which features her new version of The Wild Goose I assume in conjunction with November Christmas. See all of her albums on Amazon by clicking right here.

A very inspirational lens.

I am 65 years pld and watch a lot of Hallmark Movies. November Christmas reminds me about what this country was like in the 59's and 60's. How people really cared about one another. Our existence today however is only about Hate and Greed and will eventually destroy us. SAD
