Home for Christmas stars Peter O'Toole, Marcia Gay Harden and Jared Padalecki in a nostalgic, funny, and heartwarming story that is sure to become a holiday classic.
Barely out of school and still searching for his voice as an artist, twenty-year-old Thom looks forward to another idyllic holiday in his hometown of Placerville, CA, a rustic hamlet nestled in the Sierra foothills. But this Christmas, Placerville is struggling: the town'Â½s tourist industry is failing, Thom's ailing, once-brilliant mentor, Glen, has lost his ability to paint, and Thom's spirited mother, MaryAnne, reveals that she's losing their family home to foreclosure.
Faced with so much uncertainty, Thom comes to realize that salvation may lie in the community of friends and loved ones he left behind. With Glen's help, he not only discovers himself as an artist, but helps the entire town of Placerville rediscover the true spirit of the holidays.
Home for Christmas is directed by Michael Campus and produced by Thomas Kinkade and Nanette Kinkade, Julie Yorn, and Michael Campus and Arla Dietz Campus.
"Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki has joined Peter O'Toole to play Thomas Kinkade in the partly biographical film of the painter "The Christmas Cottage."READ MORE
