I Did Not Want This Movie to End.
9 January 2019 | by geheweSee all my reviews

I did not want this movie to end. I only give about 1 out of 10 movies the perfect score and that is after screening them on IMDB before I watch. They did such an awesome job casting and the story had those little things that make a movie special. If you read the summary "interim superintendent arrives to close school district music program" you might think that is an old story. Yes it is. I remember A HOLIDAY ROMANCE (1999) with Naomi Judd and SOUND OF CHRISTMAS (2016) with Lindy Booth. Both were excellent but not as good as this movie.

Leann Rhimes as Eve the superintendant was a perfect cast. She is much more the singer than the actress and this made the movie exceptional. It was her voice on about 3 original songs. We have Liam the music teacher and Abby his daughter- wonderful choices here. The role of the mom is so good. Her husband was just so perfect- that shy-ness and writing that song. We also have Lara Gilchrist as the best friend and she still reminds me a bit of an Alicia Witt. The small part of the mayor was played by Ellie Harvie who I recognize from Aurora Teagarden. In the opening scene Eve and Liam meet by seeing a meant to be couple meet by a spilling coffee collision and Liam calls it fate. It was great. Christmas Beneath the Stars and 162,500 will be images in my mind. Well Done!! I'll watch it again and again.
