Kristin's Christmas Past (2013 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
The acting is enjoyable. I loved A.J. Langer as Aunt Debbie.
There might be a couple of ways it can go, but neither would be a big surprise. Even so, I thought it was worth staying with.
What is great about this film is that it shows that a relationship between a mother and daughter is not the easiest relationship for some. The film also shows how both the mother and the daughter made mistakes and how each woman never had ill intentions. The film has a credible cast that makes this film worth remembering. This Christmas Theme film is family safe but the main audience of this film will be women past their teens. Men however should watch. Its very good.
I liked how they showed Kristin's family and the conflicts they were having. The contrast between 1996 and 2013 was also well done- smart phone versus AOL dial up internet. I don't rate them this high unless there was something special.
The story has been done quite a few times but not like this. The story flows naturally, we see great character moments that are sad, fun and everything in between. My only issue was the ending, it felt rushed and didn't do justice compared to what a great time we had getting to know Kristin, her family and her past.
A heartwarming, sometimes funny but not sickly-sentimental, Kristin's Christmas Past is a real treat for the season.
