This is a different kind of Christmas movie: it has more drama and conflict than your typical Christmas romance film. At the center of the story is Kendall Riley (played by Erin Cahill). Kendall runs the family ranch, which she inherited from her father, and is one inspection away from having The Last Chance Ranch certified organic. Clint McCree (played by Nicholas Gonzalez), our other protagonist in this story, has come home to visit and help his sick father (Brick McCree, played by A Martinez) on the family ranch (which borders Kendall's land). The two families have a troubled past. As Christmas approaches, Kendall faces the real possibility that she may lose the ranch due to some dirty tactics used by her neighbor. However, she receives help from a questionable individual: i.e., the neighbor's son Clint. The story is more than simply a romance between Kendall and Clint. The sub-plots try to dig a bit deeper into troubled family relationships between father (Brick) and son (Clint) and (former) husband (Brick) and wife (Lillian, played by Lindsay Wagner). These family dynamics, of course, represent challenges to the leads' romance/relationship along the way. The story engaged me, that is, it pulled me in from the start. The writers do a decent job of developing the main characters in this; they are a bit damaged; they feel a bit more real. The story/script has a bit of a light side to it as well, with some humorous scenes involving snooping and gossiping friends and towns' folk. The acting, overall, was strong. Cahill and Gonzalez both had convincing performances. Moreover, the chemistry between the two worked well on screen, I thought. The supporting cast also had a good performance. Martinez and Wagner both had strong performances individually, though, I thought, their chemistry was a bit lacking. The movie also provides some beautiful scenic views of the ranch/landscape. We do get a couple of scenes that try to instill a bit of Christmas spirit and cheer as well. All in all, as another reviewer on here said, this one is "a nice change from the usual stuff" this holiday season. It is an entertaining new edition to UPtv's Christmas movie lineup.
