William Devane and Meredith Baxter star in this sentimental made-for-cable drama as John and Carol Boyajian, a couple facing a bleak Christmas due to a surfeit of personal tragedy. Having already lost their son in Operation Desert Storm, the Boyajians must now confront the possibility that their daughter has cancer. Rather than wallow in grief, John and Carol are doggedly determined to celebrate their first Christmas in 11 years; but as the holiday approaches, their hope and perseverance rapidly deteriorate. The couple's faith is ultimately restored by the arrival of a mysterious "guest" who may not be precisely what he claims to be. The Christmas Visitor debuted December 21, 2002, on the Hallmark Channel. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Quiet, understated acting by everyone in this Hallmark movie made this a sweet surprise. Though at several key times, I thought I'd guessed how it would turn out, I was, at the end, wrong. Definitely worth viewing at any time of the year. Meredith Baxter and William Devane shine in playing characters that go against their normal roles.
