The Good Witch's Family is a heartwarming family drama from 2011, directed by Craig Pryce and starring Catherine Bell, Chris Potter, and Catherine Disher. This movie is the fourth installment in the Good Witch film series, following The Good Witch, The Good Witch's Garden, and The Good Witch's Gift. It follows the life of Cassandra Nightingale (Catherine Bell), a charming and enchanting woman with supernatural abilities that she uses to help her friends and family.
The movie opens with Cassie settling into her life in the town of Middleton. She has been running her store, Bell, Book & Candle, and has been helping her neighbors and friends with their personal problems. She is beloved by everyone in the community, who often remark on her mystical abilities and her warm, welcoming presence. Cassie's husband Jake Russell (Chris Potter), who is also the local sheriff, is proud of his wife's talent for helping others, but he also feels conflicted about her magical abilities. He wants to protect her from those who may want to exploit her, but he also respects her right to use her gifts to help others. Together they have a young daughter, Grace (played by Bailee Madison).
As the story unfolds, Cassie's long-lost cousin Abigail (played by Sarah Power) arrives in town. Abigail is the opposite of Cassie - she is manipulative, cunning, and selfish. She has come to Middleton to reclaim her family's heritage, and she does not care if she has to step on others to achieve her goal. Cassie senses something ominous about her cousin and tries to warn her family and friends, but they are reluctant to believe her.
Abigail quickly sets about causing trouble for Cassie and her family. She steals a precious family heirloom and frames Cassie for the theft. She also decides to open a competing store to Cassie's store. All the while, Abigail is working her charms on Jake's brother Brandon (played by Matthew Knight), who is Cassie's step-son. Brandon has always felt like an outsider in the family, and Abigail takes advantage of his insecurities to further her own goals.
As Cassie tries to figure out how to prove her innocence, she also works to protect her family from Abigail's schemes. She turns to her sister-in-law, Jennifer (Catherine Disher), for help. Jennifer is an archaeologist who has been researching their family history and discovers a clue that could help clear Cassie's name.
As the tension builds, Cassie and Jake must work together to fight Abigail and clear Cassie's name. Along the way, they face personal and professional challenges that test their faith in each other and in themselves. Will they be able to overcome these obstacles and restore peace to Middleton?
