“Money never sleeps. Neither do I.” Beverly Hills banker/workaholic Jennifer (Tatyana Ali) comes home to her small Northern California town just before Christmas when her dad, Ted (Bill Cobbs), takes a bad fall while putting up decorations. Sometimes you find love were you least expect it. “Dearest Jennifer, I know you work hard but don’t you ever feel you missed out on anything? Fondly, your secret Santa.” While home, Jenny begins getting romantic Christmas cards from an unknown admirer.
“It’s like these cards just appeared.” “I’d send a letter of complaint to the post office if I were you.” ‘Dear Secret Santa’ is a romantic film set during the holiday season. “Who are you really secret Santa?” The admirer knows so many personal things about her that she decides to write back and is astonished when something they say reminds her of Jack (Lamorne Morris), her old neighbor and the unrealized true love of her life. There’s just one problem – Jack died in a car accident three years ago.
“Do you believe in miracles?” “I believe miracles happen everyday.” Is it possible that Jack is sending her the Christmas cards? Jennifer decides to try to change history in order to save him. Directed and co-written by Peter Sullivan along with Hanz Wasserburger, ‘Dear Secret Santa’ (also known as Christmas Card) is a Lifetime TV Christmas film, starring Tatyana Ali, Jordin Sparks, Bill Cobbs, Della Reese, Ernie Hudson and Lamorne Morris.
‘Dear Secret Santa,’ now available on DVD is a 2013 movie very similar to the movie The Lake House where a man and a woman are living in two different time zones, and yet are able to communicate with each other through letters.
The movie has a great cast. What do you think?
