Three Wise Women is a charming Christmas movie that tells the story of a successful, yet unhappy lawyer named Liz, who is visited by three mysterious women on Christmas Eve. Liz, portrayed by Amy Huberman, is a workaholic who seldom stops to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. She is also uncertain of her relationship with her long-time boyfriend, who is about to propose to her.

The three women who visit Liz are none other than the three wise men from the Bible, but in human form. They have been sent to Earth to help Liz, who they believe is in desperate need of guidance. The trio includes a stylish African-American woman, a reserved Asian woman, and a robust Irish woman, played by Fionnula Flanagan, John Rhys-Davies, and Conor Mullen, respectively.

Together, these three wise women help Liz rediscover her joy for life, and in turn help her to figure out what she really wants in her romantic relationship. The movie explores themes of love, family, self-worth, and redemption- all set against the backdrop of the holiday season.

The film takes place in the span of one day, starting from Christmas Eve morning and ending on Christmas morning. Throughout the story, we see Liz interact with her quirky yet loving family, hilariously portrayed by the supporting cast, including Hugh O'Conor as Liz's brother, and Stella McCusker as her grandmother.

As the story progresses, Liz learns to let her guard down and open up to the world around her. She begins to understand the importance of being truly present in her relationships and savoring every moment of life. This newfound perspective helps her to reconcile with her boyfriend and ultimately, to make a life-changing decision about her career.

The film is filled with heartwarming scenes, humorous moments, and charming performances from the cast. The interactions between Liz and the three wise women, in particular, are a highlight of the movie. The character of Mary, played by Fionnula Flanagan, serves as the de-facto leader of the trio and brings a playful, yet grounded energy to the film. Her scenes with Liz are equal parts hilarious and poignant, as she dispenses wisdom with humor and grace.

John Rhys-Davies, as the Asian wise woman, brings a sense of quiet dignity to the role. His portrayal of the character is subtle, but effective. Meanwhile, Conor Mullen shines as the Irish wise woman, who brings a boisterous and fun-loving spirit to the team. The rapport between the three actors is excellent, and it is clear that they are having fun with their roles.

The movie is also visually stunning, with beautiful shots of Dublin at Christmas time. The film does an excellent job of showcasing the city's festive spirit, from the bustling streets to the twinkling lights. The music, too, is excellent, with a mix of original songs and classic Christmas tunes.

Overall, Three Wise Women is a wonderful holiday movie that will lift your spirits and warm your heart. It is a testament to the power of love, family, and friendship, and a reminder to appreciate the simple pleasures in life. The cast delivers excellent performances, and the story is engaging and heartfelt. It is a movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family and is sure to become a staple of many Christmas movie marathons.
