It's a week before Christmas. Miranda Chester, a stager with an interior design firm in Seattle, has avoided any personal sense of the season ever since her mother Eve Chester, a stage actress and the only parent she ever knew in Eve never having divulged the identity of Miranda's father, died while performing on stage exactly twenty years ago when Miranda was only nine. Miranda's non-Christmas this year changes when she comes into possession of a long forgotten suitcase that belonged to her mother. Three items hidden in the suitcase end up being what Miranda believes are clues to her father's identity: a bracelet with an angel charm which she does recognize as one of her mother's prized possessions; a theater playbill from San Francisco of her mother performing in The Tempest in the role of Miranda, that playbill dated nine months before this Miranda's birth; and a photograph of a man dressed as Santa Claus with a young boy on his lap, neither who she recognizes. These items make ...

Christmas for Miranda is a painful reminder of the family she never had. Her mother died when she was young, never revealing the identity of her father. But, three days before Christmas, she unexpectedly receives a clue as to the whereabouts that takes her to a beautiful New England town where she meets Ian, a young man who helps with her search. As the clues lead to her father's identity and Miranda discovers the possibility of love. Now if you like movies with Happy Endings then watch this. If you hate Christmas movies then you might not like this movie. Now I found the whole film well made and very plausible. You can understand Miranda's not only hopes and dreams but also fully under stand her fears of not wanting to disrupt a family once she learns the truth about herself. This film is not as predictable as might think. It is a nice change a pace for the typical Hallmark Film.
This should read 'Finding my unknown father at Christmas time'. The actual title could mean shopping malls, low-rent bars, old people's homes and very occasionally somewhere very far north. In fact it's about a young woman who lost her mother very early in life and has grown up never knowing who her father was. She unexpectedly discovers a number of clues about her mother's secrets, the most important clue for us being that it's just before Christmas. From here we are presented with a mystery which she has to follow, with some of her own concerns; but for us it is most engaging and heart-warming. Early in her pursuit of answers she comes across a suitable interest. To test my observation I rewound, and sure enough, the expression and turn of her head gave it away. Unlike most other romances, he remains as a constant, providing a counter-balance for her fears and anxieties. Together, she is better equipped to handle what turns into a very complex situation. Set in a small Vermont town, the customs and Christmas activities of the villagers introduces us to all the main characters. Finding that one person who knows everything takes us down a winding path with a surprising ending. An ending that leaves the warmth from a good helping of Christmas delights. Conclusion: 8.0 Xmas points, for a delightful cast and a story to keep our interest throughout.
This movie sounded special even by reading the title, and it was. I absolutely loved the main story - Miranda trying to found out who her father was after her mother passed away while performing on stage and never got to tell her- I, personally, haven't seen anything like it on Hallmark. Someone trying to find where they came from. The love story was not the main one, but yet it made the movie special as well. Both leads did an amazing job. I really enjoyed it. The only thing that bothered me was when Miranda saw Ian talking with Peter's mother with the photograph on his hand. That was very Hallmark of them to make the main character think wrong about the other lead's character. On the contrary, I loved the fact that there was not any major drama with the leads. These movies tend to create a problem between them and it's not until one of them is on the other side of the country that they realized their mistakes. I'm glad Ian and Miranda talked the morning she was supposed to leave. It might be a detail, but I noticed and I liked it! I also think that this movie was somehow not that predictable. Maybe the happy ending, yes. But there was a change in the order things happen - at least my thought - so I never knew when things were going to happen. I absolutely loved it. A must watch.
Finding a treasure! That's how this made me feel! Every Christmas I search for the movie(s) of the season to add to other favorites. (Grandpa for Xmas; all the Peter Falk Xmas movies, I'll be Home for Xmas....and several more) This year is definitely the "Father Christmas" duo! I missed this one in 2016, and didn't realize that "Engaging Father Christmas" was like a sequel. And the lead man, Niall Matter, is ho ho hoo hoo....leaves me breathless! Sure hope we see more of him in Hallmark movies!! How this story begins and continues in the 2nd feature, I can see it, going forward, in at least two more features. Next the wedding, followed by whereever the author takes us. I noticed both of these stories have the same authors, Golden and Gunn, so keep it going, please! I've already watched both "Finding" and "Engaging" twice already this season! Just make me feel good all over and feel the holiday spirit at it's best!
Both movies, starting with "Finding Father Christmas" complement each other VERY nicely. Very Well Directed, and 'Miranda' (Erin Krakow) comes across as a very believable / sensitive character, searching for answers leading to the identity of her real father, and her place with a far away unsuspecting family (back east, in Vermont), far removed from her Seattle connections. Her subtle but highly talented acting skills convincingly captures the audience, and takes them on a sentimental journey into solving a family mystery, and her place in not only finding who is 'Father Christmas', but the meaning of Christmas, itself ! Some subtle changes between the first movie, and the second movie are inherent, as you plunge into the sequel: "Engaging Father Christmas"... Daughter Julia Whitcomb changes young actresses (from the first movie), and one of the premises, behind the family mystery.. 'the captivating poem', behind the mystery to: "the beguiling eve".. actually changes content (a subtle line is added to the original poem, in the second movie. as was initially introduced in the first movie); But these are subtle elements / modifications that actually complement the overall finish product. BOTH - GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAY productions - a Must See !! But these are so good, you do not have to wait for the Holiday Season, to enjoy. Can't wait for the third movie to be released, (could it be: "Marrying Father Christmas" (??). High marks in this quality holiday drama series, as we have come to know and love - both Miranda and Ian, in this instant Christmas Classic journey... In writing this review, I am reminded by one of the 'hallmark' quotes, from the movie, that stand out - as that we should be reminded: "May Truth and Grace Reside Here".. how poignant.
