Window Wonderland (TV Movie 2013)37914
Window Wonderland: Directed by Michael M. Scott. With Chyler Leigh, Paul Campbell, Naomi Judd, Terence Kelly. A department-store window decorator learns there is a vacancy for her dream job in the run-up to Christmas, only to find a professional rival has his eye on it too.
“This has more depth and substance than your average Hallmark Christmas movie. The leads are well matched and Naomi Judd is a wonderful in her supporting role. And could it be that the female lead is named as a homage to Philip van Doren Stern, the writer of The Greatest Gift, the short story that was turned into an obscure little Christmas movie entitled, Itu0026#39;s A Wonderful Life? u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt goes through the usual, slow coming together, then sudden falling out, and final happy ending of all Hallmark romantic movies. But, in this case whole is greater than the sum of its parts. My only criticism is the music. I found it too loud and intrusive, in parts. And not Christmasy enough. But that does not detract too much from this festive gem. Do watch it. You will not be disappointed.”
