In "The Christmas Heart," the tight knit neighbors on Arthur Avenue have proudly been lighting Christmas luminaries for 40 years, but that long-standing tradition is cancelled this year when Matt Norman, a boy in the neighborhood, is hospitalized and desperately needs a heart transplant. A donor is found, and Life Flight quickly gets the heart airborne on Christmas Eve, fighting a winter storm with no time left to lose. The neighborhood lights the luminaries in honor of Matt and his family, and their loving exhibition turns out to be the miracle that save's Matt's life.

"The Christmas Heart" is a Xmas Heart Films production. Executive Producers are Emmy(R) Award winner Patricia Heaton, David Hunt, A. J. Morewitz and Juliette Hagopian. "The Christmas Heart" is written by Cleveland Plain Dealer "Minister of Culture," pop culture journalist and Ms. Heaton's brother, Michael Heaton.

  1. Thank you for the information! Looking forward to Patricia's movie that her brother wrote! Neat!

    Off topic, but it's really hard for me to read with the red background. Thanks again!

  2. Can't wait! Our son, Cruise Brown plays Tommy Norman in his first movie. What a blast! The Winnipeg crew made everything wonderful and exciting for his first on set experience. Thanks to all who were involved.

  3. Anonymous #1: You're welcome for the information. I'm looking forward to it, too - and all the other new Hallmark Christmas Movies!

    If you are still having trouble with the backgound, please refresh your page - the middle section is always a white background that makes it easy to read the text.

    Anonymous #2 - Congratulations to your Son, for getting a role in this movie! How exciting for your family. I wish him well and look forward to seeing him in it.

    It's nice to hear you had such a pleasant filming experience. Again, Congrats! Hope it's a big hit!

  4. Watched this movie last night and it was wonderful. Being from Cleveland made it all the more special! Kudo's to Patricia Heaton and her brother Michael Heaton for a wonderful Christmas movie! Sure to become a favorite! Very good and very well done!

  5. Just watched this movie. I really enjoyed the multiple story lines that all came together at the conclusion. My eyes were leaking a little bit but it is always good to remember that we should hold on to the faith we have and remember to never give up hope. Thanks for a great reminder and a great story line.

  6. Gee, what a strange coincidence. My son flew the Cleveland Clinics transplant aircraft when he lived in lakewood Ohio at the time. The funny part is, he and his wife are dead ringers for the movies actors!

  7. who played the pilot, he's very handsome!!

  8. who played the pilot in the santa suit, looks exactly like my ex-husband, very handsome

  9. Great movie, but the surgeon missed acting skills

  10. when will it be out on dvd?
