The prequel to this year's An Old Fashioned Christmas, this Hallmark movie is based on the story by Louisa May Alcott book of the same title. An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving is a good family movie that reminds us to be thankful for what we have and for our loved ones, and to forgive others as we have been forgiven also.
Set in New Hampshire, shortly after the Civil War, it follows the story of a young widow who is trying to rear her three children in spite of the hardships she is facing. It is centered around the Thanksgiving holiday and one teenager who tries to save her struggling family from financial ruin by contacting an unknown grandmother.
Strong performances by Jacqueline Bissett and Helena Joy, this is considered one of the better Hallmark movies by many critics, with good acting, and some depth to the story and its characters.
Be sure to catch the premier of the sequel, An Old Fashioned Christmas, which is set to air on the Hallmark channel, Saturday, December 11, 2010.
