Storyline

Uptight city accountant, Michael Thompson (Patrick Muldoon), is struggling to raise his teenage daughter Chloe (Mandalynn Carlson) all on his own. So when he gets a call from Cliff Harrison (Rick Herod) to help save their family stables before ruthless bank managers shut them down, he wonders if the country life is just what they need to start over. Michael takes the job, even though he quickly finds out that Cliff's daughter (Charisma Carpenter) is not as keen as the rest of the family (Dominique Swain, Jaren Lewison, Billy Tilk) for his help. But as they search for ways to save the family's legacy, they find a future that they never expected. Written by Grindstone Entertainment Group, LLC.

An afternoons so-so entertainment
3 December 2015 | by daveogilvieSee all my reviews

Must be the season for watching Charisma Carpenter as this is the second film of hers I have seen on UK's Channel 5. The other being Obsession. Any ways did n't set out to watch this and I guess I persevered with it. Patrick Muldoon the accountant, arrives to sort out a farm whose owners have come into debt via poor financial management. Romance develops between our accountant and Charisma one of the farm owners. Obviously there are some baddies involved, who want a horse called Holly for some reason. The film goes along so-so. For once I thought the child acting was actually pretty good, not cringable which I find in US dramas. The acting I thought with all the major characters I found pretty good, I thought it was the writing or maybe direction which let it down in some way. At times I thought Muldoon/Carpenter/Swain were rescuing it. Well the film ended with a tiny surprise in one way. I could n't see me watching it again. It is a family film I guess and I suppose if I had children would watch it with them, but could nt see them rush to watch it again either.

This film is called A Christmas Promise in UK and a Horse Tail in US. Think perhaps Holly's Christmas Tail might have been better.

PS, Charisma Carpenter definitely needs to be on TV more.
