Hearts in the right place

There's SO many cheesy Christmas movies made on a shoestring these days, but I'm happy to say that , once in a while, they give us a golden nugget in the shape of Hearts of Christmas. The romance is pretty typical - girl hates boy, girl maybe likes boy, hates him again , until the warming romantic ending. What made this film stand out was the on screen acting and chemistry of the 2 leads, Emilie Ullerop and Kristoffer Polaha. Good solid believable performances and an excellent under-story surrounding a Community Children's Hospital and forced redundancies amongst the staff, especially for Alice (Sharon Lawrence). On a cold night, it'll warm your heart and I defy you not to shed at least one tear !

Heart warming Story: Perfect for the Holidays

I watched this movie twice and would watch it again. It had a wonderful romance, an interesting plot, and a strong cast. This movie WILL develop a much greater following as it continues to be shown! I especially enjoyed the focus on a hospital, with a dedicated group of nurses working in a NeoNatal Intensive Care Unit. Their work--not only with the tiny babies but also with their families--struck a chord with me because I had a premature baby boy who spent almost three months in such a unit in Providence, Rhode Island at Women's and Infants hospital. The conflict in the story centers around the efforts to control costs by bringing in an outsider, who looks at numbers and cuts staff. An older supervising nurse is one of the casualties and must take early retirement: her staff is frustrated and notes how many lives she has impacted. Every year, many of her "Angel babies" send her Christmas cards. One young nurse decides to use their annual party to honor this woman. The story also focuses on one young family whose baby needs surgery. Far from being predictable, there are several plot twists and emotional scenes that I found especially moving. With so many movies over the holidays, this one stood out to me and I made it a point to see it again. It also made me think of a very special friend, Beth, who is a nurse practitioner in the Kansas City area; she got me through my ordeal so many years ago with a number of phone calls offering the same blend of factual information, hope, and compassion that I saw the nurses in this movie offer to families. It seemed very authentic to me.

Hearts of Christmas- Good Enough to Touch Your Heart

I am surprised I am the first one to write a review on this movie. Very very pleasant lead actress and actor (Jenny and Matt) make this a delightful one to watch. There is a conflict on her part and even a hint of a "White Christmas" (Bing Crosby Rosemary Clooney) misunderstanding at the end. The supporting role of Alice made for some of the nicest heartfelt moments in the movie- well done. The Neo Natal Ward at the hospital was well done with the care they provide the families. The smaller part of parents the baby in the incubator did make me wonder where I had seen him before-- Looked it up- he was in 4 Christmas Movies in 2016. The lady that played a small part as Matt's sister looked familiar and had starred in Nine Lives of Christmas. I am borderline on this- but yes I would watch it again. Even though we were tired we did not doze. I gave it a 9 instead of an 8 because of a surprise at the end and the Neo Natal care for the family aspect. Some criticisms. The movie title is a bit of a stretch. Another ice skating scene- really? My family criticized my criticisms. There is a pledge/farewell that is said by the staff to the parents that has "Hearts" in it. I did not quite catch that, but thought it is great they do the pledge. The staff is about Heart and not the bottom line, hence the "Hearts of Christmas" title. Also what happens at the ice skating rink does contribute to the story.
