Hallmark Channel: A Dickens of a Holiday!
Coming this Friday, just in time for the weekend, A Dickens of a Holiday! is part of Hallmark Channel’s annual Countdown to Christmas programming event. The movie stars Brooke D’Orsay and Kristoffer Polaha, among others.
According to the official Hallmark synopsis, Christmas Eve in Dickens, Ohio, marks the 100th anniversary of the town’s Dickens’ Days. The Victorian festival ends with the community theater’s production of that famous Charles Dickens story, A Christmas Carol.
However, when the lead actor is forced to drop out, director Cassie (D’Orsay) reaches out to her former High School classmate and Dickens’ native, Jake (Polaha). Jake is an action movie star who wants more serious roles in Hollywood. At first, work between Cassie and Jake is problematic, but the more they rehearse and take part in the holiday activities of Dickens’ Days, the more the couple warms up to each other.
It is up to director Cassie to show Jake the actor that he is capable of a serious, leading-man role. For his part, Jake helps Cassie realize that she is still the most likely to succeed. However, this is in roles she never expected: a teacher, a coach and a leader.
