The March Sisters at Christmas is a heartwarming family drama directed by John Stimpson and starring Julie Berman, Kaitlin Doubleday, and Melissa Farman. This movie is a modern adaptation of the classic novel Little Women written by American author Louisa May Alcott. The story centers around the March family and their struggles to keep their family bond tight during the Christmas season.

The movie opens with the four March sisters, Jo (Julie Berman), Meg (Kaitlin Doubleday), Beth (Melissa Farman), and Amy (Molly Kunz), coming together at their childhood home to celebrate Christmas. The sisters are all adults now and are each facing their own personal and professional challenges. Jo, the writer, is struggling to find inspiration for her next novel. Meg, the mother of twin boys, is struggling to balance her family life and her dream of running a catering business. Beth, a gifted musician, is dealing with her health issues. Amy, the youngest sister, is still trying to find her place in the world.

As the family gathers for the holiday season, tension and conflict arise among the sisters as they all have different expectations of how the holidays should be celebrated. Jo is opposed to some of the family traditions, including the ballet performance of The Nutcracker, which Meg has planned for them to attend. Beth is too sick to leave the house, let alone perform at the church Christmas concert. Amy is feeling left out because her older sisters are caught up in their own lives.

The sisters' mother, Marmee (Melrose Place alumna Bart Johnson), works tirelessly to keep the family together and reminds them of the importance of forgiveness and unity during the holiday season. She encourages her daughters to support each other and to work through their differences. Throughout the movie, the family is faced with challenges that test their bond, but they ultimately come together to celebrate Christmas with love and harmony.

One of the heartwarming moments in the movie is when the sisters come together to decorate their childhood tree with homemade ornaments, reminiscing about their past memories. They also make a beautiful creation to place on their father's grave as a way to remember him.

The March Sisters at Christmas does a beautiful job of balancing the themes of family, love, and forgiveness with the more traditional aspects of Christmas. The movie is visually stunning, with beautiful scenery and music that captures the spirit of the season.
