Reviews

Returning to his home town after the death of the grandfather who raised him, slick and cynical Wall Street trader Will Martin (Neil Patrick Harris) feels decidedly out of place, and not at all in tune with the Christmas preparations being made by the local citizenry. But Will isn't really taking a sentimental journey at all: He's merely in town to modernize and streamline his family's real-estate company. While going through his grandfather's effects, Will and his grandmother (Debbie Reynolds) come across the old man's diary - which reveals a lengthy relationship with a woman named Lillian. Determined to locate this mystery mistress (if indeed that's who Lillian is), Will learns a few vital lessons about love, forgiveness, and recapturing the Yuletide spirit that has so long eluded him. Adapted from a novel by Richard Siddoway.

The Christmas Wish [DVD]

A good old-fashioned Christmas film incorporating forgiveness, mystery, Christmas spirit but with more substance than the usual Christmas film.

Well acted by Debbie Reynolds, who plays the grandmother, and Neil Patrick Harris her grandson Will. He returns to help look after the family business following the death of his grandfather and, over the build up to Christmas, he comes to understand the good effect that his grandfather had on the lives of the community.

They were, therefore, both surprised to find reference in his journals to regular contact that he had with a mysterious women called Lilian. Will's Christmas gift to his grandmother is to find out the identity of Lilian, with surprising results.

When Will Martin's grandfather dies he returns home to take care of the family business. When his grandmother confesses that she read his late grandfather's journals she tells Will that her Christmas wish is to find the identity of a woman named Lillian.

This is by far not your average Christmas film to start with it has way more substance. It contains mystery and the power of forgiveness with just the right amount of Christmas spirit. It's a touching film that shows you it's not all about money sometimes the best thing is the giving. This film is bound to touch even the coldest of people. The ending was surprising; a wonderful twist to an already amazing film. The best Christmas film I've ever seen.
