A Christmas in Vermont is a heartwarming holiday movie that tells the story of three different families who all end up spending Christmas under the same roof. The film stars Abigail Hawk as Riley Thomas, a struggling singles talk show host who decides to swap her usual Christmas with the family in favor of a cozy and quiet holiday in Vermont. However, when a snowstorm stranded her at her parents-in-law's inn along with two other families, her plans are quickly undone.

The other families come through the worsening snowstorm, each with their own baggage and characteristics. One family is a mother and her son, who are on the run from an abusive husband and who only want to hide and start a new life. The second family is a father and his teenage daughter, who seem to have a lot of secrets between them. In the end, they come together and form a bond that they never thought was possible.

The story deals with themes of love, loss, and forgiveness during the holiday season. It is a story about family, friendship, and self-discovery that will leave viewers feeling warm and hopeful. The movie takes place in the picturesque countryside of Vermont, and the beautiful natural scenery adds to the charm of the film. The snow falling outside the inn throughout the film also highlights the sense of isolation created in the plot.

Aside from the picturesque location, the cast also delivers impressive performances that further elevate the film. True to her character's nature, Abigail Hawk gives an earnest and believable portrayal of someone who's trying to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Meanwhile, Chevy Chase plays the role of her father. He provides the assistance and the guidance without overstepping his bounds.

David O'Donnell, who plays the role of Jack, is the father who is trying to reconnect with his daughter Emma, played by Morgan Bastin, who fiercely plays the part of a teenager who is very skeptical towards her father's intention. The rest of the ensemble cast complements the film's central characters perfectly, creating a dynamic story that keeps viewers engaged from start to finish.

The movie is also notable for its complex script which subtly addresses difficult topics like loss, abuse, and the struggle to make ends meet. But those topics are presented with a light touch, which isn't too heavy or too sombre. This balance is critical for a movie of this genre and helps the film stay engaging and entertaining.

Heartwarming and energetic, A Christmas in Vermont is a cinematic gem that viewers should not miss. It offers a unique take on the traditional holiday movie while still capturing the charm and magic of the season. The film is a perfect watch for the whole family as it offers something for everyone. The movie is a must-watch film, as it will leave viewers feeling happy, hopeful, and ultimately, grateful for their own families.

A Christmas in Vermont is a 2016 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5.
