What is A Christmas Melody about?
A Christmas Melody is a 2015 American Christmas television film which is directed by Mariah Carey. The movie was filmed in October 2015 and debuted on the Hallmark Channel on December 19, 2015.
This Hallmark’s famous film is also known under its working title of Mistletoe & Melody. When the film was premiered, it was viewed by 3.95 million people.
“A Christmas Melody” revolves around Kristin (Lacey Chabert) – a beautiful, stylish widow who is a talented clothing designer, and her young daughter. Kristin has recently returned to her hometown of Silver Falls, Ohio with her daughter Emily (Fina Strazza) after her fashion business in Los Angeles ended.
This is considered a big adjustment for Kristin and Emily – especially when the move brings Kristin face to face with Melissa (Mariah Carey), her former rival from high school. Melissa is at that time the president of the PTA and makes every effort to make Kristen feel as unwelcome as possible.
Kristin and Melissa don’t get along well with each other. This drives their loved ones to let them know the Christmas spirit and help them to overcome their differences. With the support of the music teacher Danny (Brennan Elliott) and Kristin’s Aunt Sarah (Kathy Najimy), the local coffee shop owner, the two women can find their new normal. With a little holiday magic and music, Kristin and Emily determine that home is where the heart is.
