“Falling For Christmas” is “Ice Princess” meets Hallmark!
Actors Leah Renee, Niall Matter and Michael Tiegen star in the family friendly film about following your heart. Leah plays injured figure skater Claire who travels to a remote rehabilitation center in the mountains to heal her wound and get back on the ice. Unfortunately, her injury is so severe it threatens to end her career. So, she has to make a brave decision to fight through the pain and continue skating, or embrace a new life and follow her heart.
Along the way, her controlling coach continues to push her in the wrong direction, while quarreling with her potential beau (an ex-hockey player named Luke).
Even though the movie was a little slow moving, it was still one of those feel good films that the entire family can enjoy. Overall, it has the elements you love about holiday films with a touch of originality. Actors Gracyn Shinyei, Lochlyn Munro, Lisa Whelchel also star.
“Falling For Christmas” is currently airing on UP tv.
