PLOT:

via Hallmark News Release:

Mary-Louise Parker plays Suzy Gainsborough, whose husband decides the perfect Christmas present for his beloved – but ailing – wife is a ride on a real-deal Ferris wheel, set up in their own back yard. Why? Because it was while riding one many moons ago that Duncan asked Suzy to marry him.

The neighbors are not amused as the 100-foot-high mechanical monstrosity arises in the couple’s back yard. But love is in the air, and not just between Suzy and Duncan. Suzy’s nurse, Natalie, and a young landscaper who’s helping Duncan assemble the giant Ferris wheel also fall under the intoxicating spell of romance.

Christmas in Conway will become the 250th presentation of the Hallmark Hall of Fame when it premieres on ABC.

    1. I agree... does sound rather sound. I am also wondering how Christmas will be involved in the storyline, too.

  4. I must admit, when I first saw previews for 'Christmas in Conway', I was somewhat reluctant to watch it. The storyline, which deals with hospice care during the holiday season, struck a little too close to home, due to the death of a family member last year just days before Christmas.

    However, my love for 'Hallmark Hall of Fame' encouraged me to at least try watching it. And I must say, I'm very glad I did. Though there is a pervading, inherent sense of sadness in the film, it is not overwhelmingly depressing.

    At the core, 'Christmas in Conway' is a story about love, forgiveness and redemption. Additionally, as unexpected supply of humor was provided by former SNL funny lady, Cheri Oteri. Futher to that point, the entire cast is stellar, including talents such as: Mary Louise Parker, Andy Garcia, Mandy Moore and Riley Smith.

    For adults, due to the serious subject matter, I highly recommend this holiday film.
