Great Hilarie Burton Acting but Story was a bit Christmas on the Boring
Hilarie Burton is a bit of amazing. She played the part of a Louisiana young mom perfectly. The way she talked was perfect. I live in the area and she reminded me of a young mom I know- phrases like "Just Sayin". If this lady got the roles Lacey Chabert got- we'd have better movies. The way she talked with her son in those tender moments was just perfect. I watched "Last Chance for Christmas- 2015" the night before in which she plays a black haired mom/rancher (did not seem like the same person). Good thing I hadn't watched this movie first because in comparison to this movie her role would have seemed such a waste. I see she was in another movie "Surprised by Love" in which she was a blonde.
As you gather Hilarie Burton gets an A+, her son, Markie Post (mom), and Tyler Hilton all get A's. Randy Travis played a part that added little to the movie. Ed Asner role was a bit crucial but a Cajun accent did not seem right. He reminded me a little of Spencer Tracy. If the story had some depth this could have been an excellent movie. It is a good movie, well done in acting and is worth watching, you might doze in spots if you're a bit tired.
