An Evergreen Christmas Premieres on DVD November 4, 2014 - Theatrical Thursday Movie Review

My husband and I just love watching sweet Christmas stories the whole month of December.  We just found another that will be a part of our growing Christmas movie reverie - An Evergreen Christmas.

Leaving her seemingly glamorous Hollywood life on hold, Evie Lee is forced to return to her small hometown of Balsam Falls, Tennessee and her family's once-thriving Christmas tree farm to attend her father’s unexpected funeral. As the eldest sibling, she finds herself executor of an estate that owes a massive inheritance tax, much to her younger brother's dismay. Torn between pursuing her music career and saving her family's legacy, she must decide what it really means to find her place in the world.

Charleene Closshey as Evie Lee
An Evergreen Christmas is a nice drama the whole family can watch.  Evie Lee, a YouTube sensation that never got her own music career, is forced to go back home from Hollywood to go to her father's untimely funeral.  With a massive inheritance tax and a snidely old rival from high school, Evie has big decisions she has to make.  Will she decide to try to keep the family farm or will she go back to Hollywood to keep trying to pursue a music career?

Robert Loggia as Pops
While this is a family drama with a romance involved, we did find some fun moments tucked into this film.  Evie brings with her from Hollywood this geeky coffeehouse actor hopeful boyfriend that her Tennessee grandfather soundly disapproves of, and the ways that he disapproves is quite fun.

Naomi Judd plays a splendid part as Honey, Pop's wife
Charleene Closshey stars amidst a colorful cast including Robert Loggia, Tyler Ritter, Booboo Stewart and Naomi Judd in this heart-warming musical holiday tale about facing your past, rediscovering your voice, and fulfilling your dreams.

Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga) as Angel
This movie is rated PG for thematic elements and brief language, and is 138 minutes long.  We don't remember what the language was when we were watching this movie as we were quite absorbed into the story.  There was not any shockingly bad language in this movie.  It's just a fun story.

Brought to you by Arc Entertainment, An Evergreen Christmas becomes available to own on DVD November 4, 2014.  It has a retail value of $20.99, and is available to order at Amazon for only $13.69.
