A beautiful festive getaway

Throughout my whole Christmas film completest quest undertaken since late 2019, an interesting quest but very mixed one, there was never the mentality of expecting a classic or the film in question to be flawless. Something that was never managed with Hallmark's output. There was however always the expectation of seeing a film where one can see at least some effort rather than merely cash-in level. One could see that with enough of Hallmark's output but not all.

'Christmas Getaway' is not a Christmas classic, but seeing it the amount of effort that went into it was more than evident throughout. Hallmark's Christmas output has been very variable, the best ones being surprisingly well done and the worst being terrible. 'Christmas Getaway' in many ways is towards being of their overall best, with most elements done remarkably well and only a few things done imperfectly which was not unexpected in a way.

It is a bit of a slow starter, where it takes a bit of time to get going. Was expecting much originality and the film is pretty formulaic as far as Christmas films go.

Also thought that Emory was a bit difficult to warm to at first, exaggerated negative character traits is a pet peeve of mine and something that Hallmark was guilty of a lot. The resolution agreed is a bit too easy and Alice Bennett is underused.

However, Bridget Regan is truly charming and easy to like and once Emory becomes easier to warm to (which is actually quite quickly) it is very easy to root for her and her goals. Travis Van Winkle matches her beautifully in the easy going charm department and never overoes it while never phoning in. Teryl Rothery had a knack for scene stealing. And she is a breath of fresh air delight whenever she appears. Child performances have varied so much in Christmas films, this is a example of an adorable and likeable child performance that is also remarkably mature.

Variable also in Christmas films has been the chemistry between the actors. The chemistry between the leads is very heart-warming, grows realistically and never comes over as forced. The romance never comes over as too heavy and endears, development is not too aimless and it doesn't feel rushed through.

Moreover, the production values still manage to be great, one of the best looking Hallmark festive films of that year. It's not too drab or garish in photography, the editing didn't seem rushed or disorganised and the scenery has a real charm to it. Most of the soundtrack is nostalgic and appealing to listen to, capturing the festive spirit well. Hallmark had a real habit of over-scoring their films but that's not as much the case here. The script just about avoids being corny and saccharine, both of which are common for Hallmark, and the story is mostly very engaging, easy to be uplifted by and heart-warming. Did like the characters too and they came over as more real than a lot of Hallmark Christmas films.

Concluding, really liked it on the whole. 7/10.

straight forward Hallmark

Emory Blake (Bridget Regan) is a workaholic travel writer. She is often away from her San Francisco home. When her boyfriend invites her to visit his family in Boston for Christmas, she turns him down and they break up. She is eager for her next work assignment doing a story on a cabin holiday in Pine Grove. She is shocked when Scott Hays (Travis Van Winkle) seems to have broke in and gives him a swift kick. The owner had double booked the rental. Scott is a widower with his daughter Katy and waiting for his mother Marilyn (Teryl Rothery) to arrive. Emory agrees to go home but her car breaks down and she's forced to stay. Alice Bennett is a parent to Katy's classmate Johnny.

It's a rather straight forward romance. There is a hint of a love triangle but Alice is never given enough screen time to be a bigger character. In the end, the path is singular and straight. There are no turns, no twists, and no surprises. There is a predictable misunderstanding and an easy resolution. It's a Hallmark movie.

Snowed up for Christmas

Christmas Getaway has an easy charm with its light romance.

Emory Blake rents a log cabin over Christmas. She finds out that the cabin has been double booked by single dad Scott. He is staying there with his young daughter Katy and they will be joined later on by his mother.

As the weather has turned bad, they ask Emory to stay over until it gets better.

Emory tells Katy about all her travels around the world. Of course Scott realises that Emory might be the one for him since his wife died.

It is an Hallmark Christmas film, but it came across better than some of their output.
