Novelist Jennifer Snow writes beautiful romantic fiction. Having her novel, “Mistletoe and Molly,” chosen by Vast Entertainment and Breakthrough Entertainment, and the multi-award-winning (including an Emmy!) Producer/Director Lane Shefter Bishop, to develop into a Christmas movie with a charming cast, tells the viewer all the right elements are in place to ensure this will be entertaining and well worth watching! Dove approved for 12+ audience due to some language.
Public Relations executive Molly Bishop (Eden Broda) works as a waitress for now but only to pay the bills. A strong advocate of animals in need, she uses her extra cash to cover the cost of an animal hit by a car (incident implied) and can’t afford to pay the car repair shop. Not wanting to rely on her controlling father’s money, and determined to make it on her own, she is just waiting for that call from that big PR firm, a rival to her own father’s company. When café regular Aiden Ford (Zach Smadu) overhears Molly’s financial situation, he pays the repair bill and parks the car at the café. He is ambitious, hardworking, and “fixes” people.
As Molly and Aiden, awkwardly and comically, get to know each other and their feelings grow, Molly wonders if she can be falling for a man so much like her father…workaholic, rich, and influential. So influential, that when Molly discovers Aiden interfered with her job opportunity when she distinctly asked him not to, she is furious and wants nothing to do with him. Trust is broken, and their budding romance is severely threatened.
Despite the other side of Aiden, who is a devoted surrogate father to his hearing-impaired nephew and is willing to help anyone in need, can Molly overlook the very qualities she loathes in her father, and give her heart a chance at happiness… without losing her hard-earned independence?
The Dove Take
Independence is admirable but accepting the kindness of others is a way of showing respect and appreciation and ultimately creates a positive feeling for the donor. Do not disregard that by saying “no” to a win-win situation when it comes from an act of honest generosity.
