Olivia Newton-John with her real life daughter

Williams Lake Film Club shows A Christmas Romance

The Williams Lake Film Club will show A Christmas Romance at the Gibraltar Room on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 7 p.m.

Once again the Williams Lake Film Club offers a special movie for the whole family for the Christmas Season. A Christmas Romance will be shown at the Gibraltar Room on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 7 p.m.

With a title like A Christmas Romance, you might expect a simple piece of fluff.

But this film really does offer more. Yes, it is a romance in a way, but it is clever, witty and funny.

Real people are portrayed here and it is a heartwarming experience, something we do not see that often anymore. Critics do not particularly like it, people call it a Holiday Classic.

Julia Stonecypher, played by Olivia Newton-John, is a young widow with two daughters. Times are tough for her and she is struggling to keep up financially. She has just lost her job and all the hard work with her baking does not pay the bills. She falls behind with the payments for their little house nestled in the woods, complete with some farm animals and helpful friends.

Along comes the nasty banker, played by Gregory Harrison, to tell her that she will lose her home if she does not get the money together. After he leaves he has an accident in the snowstorm … and I am not telling you more because it is really fun to watch.

Chloe Lattanzi, who is Olivia Newton-John’s daughter in real life, plays Julia’s oldest daughter.

Also, this was Olivia’s first film after her battle with breast cancer and it seems to be a celebration of everything life has to offer.

Sometimes you just need a movie to make you feel good, and this is it.

Also, it is filmed in Maple Ridge, right here in BC, and has a rather rustic “Cariboo” touch.

After the film we will have mulled apple cider and  yummy treats. Maybe you would like to bring some too. Let’s have a bit of a social to start into the Christmas season.

We also would like to ask you to bring some food for the Food Bank. It is the time for sharing.

And we will have a table with DVDs and posters for sale, all material from our Film Club, from $5 to $20. All the proceeds from the Film Club go do help the LDA, the Williams Lake Chapter of the Association for Students with Learning Disabilities.

We are really looking forward to this evening and are especially looking forward to see you there.

 

Back doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $9 regular, $8 for members, $6 for seniors (65+) and students, HS and TRU, kids under 12 get in free.
