The precocious six-year-old Manhattanite of Kay Thompson's beloved Eloise books gets into the holiday spirit while playing cupid in this made-for-TV comedy. Eloise (Sofia Vassilieva) resides at the Plaza Hotel with her parents, and like much of the hotel staff, she's excited about the upcoming marriage of Rachel Peabody (Sarah Topham), the daughter of the hotel's owner, to handsome Brooks Oliver (Rick Roberts). However, Eloise learns that Brooks' motivations for marrying Rachel are not sincere, and so the youngster tries to sway Rachel away from her fiancé and toward Bill (Gavin Creel), a good-hearted waiter in the hotel's restaurant. Eloise at Christmastime also features Julie Andrews, Jeffrey Tambor, and Christine Baranski. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
My daughter wanted to watch this when it came out a couple of years ago - reluctantly i agreed to watch it with her. It is absolutely adorable!! I was the one that made sure we got it this year and have made it a Christmas tradition... wonderful show!
I enjoyed watching this film with my family and ended up buying a copy of it to watch in the future, even though my children are in their twenties. Sofia Vassilieva, as Eloise was just full of fun and mischief, she kind of remined me of myself when I was a kid, so full of energy! Julie Andrews also played a great Nanny in the movie.
