Storyline

Allie Evans is a maid who just lost her job at a hotel for not getting a client's room prepared in time. She is then hired by a man named Fergus (who is working for a hotel patron that overheard what happened to her) where he invites her to the European country of Winshire to work as a governess for his employer. Upon arrival, Allie discovers that Fergus' boss is King Maximillian and meets his daughter Theodora who had been terrorizing other authority figures since the untimely death of her mother the Queen of Winshire. As Allie bonds with Theodora while getting acquainted to the other servants and Chancellor Riggs, she learns that King Maximillian is scheduled to be wed to Countess Celia. Written by Rtkat3

Quotes

Theodora: [to Celia and Max] Miss Evans says that you should never yell at a child. If you're angry, just lean in and whisper quietly. It's scarier.
Allie: [to Celia and Max] That was more of a joke.
Theodora: [to Celia and Max] Miss Evans says that good parenting lies somewhere between "Don't do that" and "What the heck."

Danica McKellar nails it
27 January 2017 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

When your humble reviewer grew up (when dinosaurs roamed) there was no such thing as a Christmas movie.

As the TV age dawned, older movies which perhaps had a X-Mas scene in them would be eagerly displayed by programmers at fledgling TV stations to try to establish a "theme." Look closely for example at Miracle on 34th Street (the original -- not the 200 remakes!) or even Its a Wonderful Life and you will notice they are actually real movies that just happen to have a secondary X-mas theme.

So for those of us of a certain age, we grew up to the same half-dozen or so movies played over and over, season after season.

As with everything else, the pendulum swung the other way and by the dawn of the new millennium, making these movies for the season had become a profit center. Now suddenly we have too many of them. And they are not all gems.

But this one is. The pacing is wonderful as is the casting the acting and the performance of Danica McKellar. The script does not over-reach.

Loved it.
