Dear Secret Santa
Beverly Hills banker/workaholic JENNIFER comes home to her small Northern California town just before Christmas when her dad, TED , takes a bad fall while putting up decorations. While home, Jenny begins getting romantic Christmas cards from an unknown admirer, who turns out to be her old neighbor and the unrealized love of her life, JACK. There's just one problem- Jack died in a car accident three years ago.
Jennifer is Ms. Too Busy for Love kind of girl; who Loves her father, although not as close to him as she was her mother ...But, she does love him But when he has a fall and she has to drop everything and go to see about him it dawns on her that He does not need to live alone. When you have only one parent alive and you are the only child sometimes I'm sure it can be overwhelming and I'm sure Jennifer felt like she had to parent her Father. Jennifer has put up a wall so that she will not allow herself to get close to anyone, not even her Father....I believe its fear of losing them like she lost her Mother and her real true Love (Jack). This Movie make you think about words that has went unsaid, Not telling people you Love them before its too late. There is A lot of things Jennifer didn't do concerning her father...using that parenting skill that she do not possess; She decides to sell his house, without telling himm_What daughter does that? But, while trying to fix her father life, her life gets fixed & turned upside down when she starts receiving cards in the mail from a Secret Santa..Watching her trying to figure out "Who Sent It" was interesting. Don't forget to watch the whole movie, from beginning to end. It will give you a sense of Thanksgiving, if you are living your dream. In the End every ones lives are changed....For the Better. Because when you think about the life that each person was living was not A happy life they all looked like they were looking for something that is missing. Jennifer's friend Abby was always working, Her Father was always doing something but not finishing anything. The doctor was the only one being productive but, he didn't even have a love Life. It seem that with them all there was always (doubt)....Doubt whether or not they are Loved, whether or not they will have a place to call home to and whether or not they would ever find True Love. This Movie keeps you wandering until the end How is she gonna fix this. There is an old saying that time heals all wounds, whether it be emotional, physical, mental, Only time will tell and in this Movie only time ..(The End) told you how she did it!
