  1. It's great to see Lucas Bryant again. I already know I'm going to like this one.

    1. Oh, I like him, too! Especially loved "Tulips in Spring!" It's great to see him on Hallmark again!

  2. I watched the movie clip on Home & Family. I laugh my sock out when Katherine (Alison Sweeney) put her money 💵 in Jack’s (Luke Bryant) coffee cup, that’s what she’s really thought it was when her Son is laughing at his Mom outside train station when they end up in the same train ahead to home to Virginia Town.

  3. Hallmark Christmas movie called; “A Holiday Love Story” (2020)

    Carmel auditions for lead in Hallmark holiday movie
    The City of Carmel is auditioning for a lead role on the Hallmark Channel.

    Yep, Carmel hopes to be the backdrop for a romantic holiday.

    Hallmark Christmas movies are often set in small, picturesque towns, many times with an outdoor skating rink and an historic German village, much like Carmel offers during the holiday season adjacent to its Center for the Performing Arts.

    "We've been told time and time again by people who come to the Christkindlmarkt that it's like being in a Hallmark movie," city spokesman Dan McFeely said. "We hear that all time, so thought why not give it a try?"

    Try out for a starring role, especially after Carmel's New York-based consultant found a captive audience in Hallmark, known for its G-rated, feel-good films.

    McFeely said the city has sent video clips to Hallmark and exchanged emails.

    "They have told us they are interested and we're hoping to get them here for a visit," he said.

    At the nearby Cake Bake Shop, which has all the ingredients of a Hallmark movie, owner Gwen Rogers said, "fantastic, they should absolutely come here," when told of the plot to draw Hallmark.

    "I admit I watch (Hallmark movies) probably not every night, but close to every night," she said. "It's great TV. I love it."

    Asked about a possible storyline involving the characters who meet and fall in love, Rogers didn't skip a beat.

    "There's got to be some sort of baking," she said. Maybe "they build a gingerbread house or make a cake together."

    Others weighing agreed Carmel's Christkindlmarkt would be perfectly cast in “A Holiday Love Story”.

    Jana Gilbert said, "it's a great fit. I think it would be perfect. It's just a little paradise, kind of a magical community.

    "It always has the sparkle and everybody's always happy," Claire Gilbert said.

    As for movie-based themes? McFeely said, "a nice love story built around a couple's love for roundabouts or public art or perhaps they meet at a show at the Palladium. There's lots of different ways you could work it in and we'd be happy to help them write that as well."

    But like all Hallmark movies, there's some drama involved. In this case, Hallmark shoots most of its films in Canada where it gets hard-to-beat tax breaks and other incentives.

    Will there be happy ending? McFeely hopes so. In 2017, Hallmark's holiday movies drew 72 million viewers. That's not just a lot of eyeballs. It's a lot of positive publicity for a city hoping more people and businesses fall in love with it and move there.


  4. Lucas Bryant could have more Hallmark movies

  5. Alison plays, Katherine, a widow who returns to her hometown with her son for the holidays. On the train ride home, Katherine encounters Jack (Lucas Bryant), a veteran on his own Christmas journey.

    Katherine and Jack are dealing with their own losses but continue to be drawn together in her hometown. They both volunteer for a military family fundraising event, which puts Jack and Katherine in constant contact with each other.

    “We always talk about the joy, the celebration, and the fun of the holidays. But some people come into the holidays with mixed feelings or loss and tragedy. So, how do we help them get through the holidays? It is a beautiful story. My character is grieving, and her son is grieving.

  7. Time for You to Come Home for Christmas

    After her husband passed, a woman returns home & meets a veteran who is in his own journey. They learn of a bond that they need

  8. The title confused me a bit, There was a very similar movie last year "Time for ME to Come Home..." instead of "YOU". They need to be more creative with the title ;) All confusion aside, it was a good movie. Definitely a tearjerker. The ending didn't tie everything neatly in a bow so-to-speak (Katherine and jack live in different places), and initially I was a little bothered by it, but I think it's okay. Kiefer O’Reilly as Will did great as Katherine's grieving teenage son. Luke Bryant needs to be in more Hallmark movies!! Beautiful story overall!

  9. Cute movie! Family friendly.

  10. Wonderful movie! Alison and Lucas are perfect together. Lucas has a special something about him. His eyes seem to look into a person's very soul. He and Alison had no trouble looking directly into each other's eyes, which is a sign of good acting. They made the story seem real. Would love to see another movie with these two together. The entire cast was great! More Lucas please!

  11. Did Katherine husband die in the war saving jack?

    1. No, I don't believe so. He did save Jack's life, but I think he died in the war later on, unrelated to the incident with Jack.
