Actors Candace Cameron Bure (“Full House”) and Marc Blucas (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) deliver in their new film “A Christmas… Present,” which premiered on Great American Family over Thanksgiving Weekend.

In “A Christmas… Present,” real estate agent Maggie Larson (Candace Cameron Bure) and her family will be spending Christmas with her recently widowed brother, Paul (Paul Fitzgerald), and his young daughter at their house.

Maggie is determined to give her brother and niece the best Christmas possible and to lift their spirits when they most need it. Though Maggie’s plan is to aid her brother, his faith and parenting style ultimately help her to understand issues within her own life and a need for closeness in her own family.

Marc Blucas is charming in the role of Eric Lansing. Director Lesley Demetriades did a solid job with its direction, and the movie deserves to be enjoyed for its rawness, honesty, and authenticity. There is something in it for the entire family.

Compliments to screenwriter Rick Garman for writing such a relatable, realistic, and resonant screenplay. It garners two thumbs up.

The trailer may be seen below.
