Heart of the Holidays is a heartwarming romantic comedy that tells the story of Emma (Vanessa Lengies), a successful interior designer living and working in Chicago. Emma has never been one for the holidays, or anything sappy for that matter, but her life takes a turn when her sister Kacie (Alanna LeVierge) invites her to spend Christmas at their childhood home in Wisconsin.

From the moment Emma arrives, she is thrown off-kilter by the quaintness of her hometown, the festivities, and the arrival of her old friend Jack (Corey Sevier) who she hasn't seen in over a decade. Jack has also returned to town for the holidays and, as the town's resident carpenter, he's been hired to help Emma's father (?) fix up the family's cabin for the holidays.

Emma and Jack are at odds from the start, both struggling with their unresolved feelings for each other and their opposing views on Christmas. Jack is the town's Christmas enthusiast, while Emma sees it as nothing more than "commercialized nonsense." But as they work together to fix up the cabin and prepare for the town's annual tree lighting ceremony, they begin to see each other's points of view and maybe even fall in love again.

As Emma navigates her way through the trials and tribulations of small-town life and the holiday season, she also has to deal with the fact that her ex-boyfriend (Jayne Eastwood) has followed her home to try and win her back. But with Jack by her side, Emma begins to realize that the magic of the holidays isn't something that can be bought, but rather something that is shared between loved ones.

Throughout the film, Heart of the Holidays explores themes of family, forgiveness, and the power of community. With a strong supporting cast, including Maria Ricossa as Emma's mother, the film creates a warm and inviting world that audiences will want to be a part of. The writing is tight and the humor is on point, creating a perfectly warm and fuzzy feel-good movie that will make you believe in the magic of the holiday season.

Overall, Heart of the Holidays is a delightful movie that will have you feeling all the feels. It's a charming romantic comedy that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside, just like a good Christmas movie should. Whether you're a holiday enthusiast or a Scrooge, there's something for everyone in this heartwarming movie.
