I love the Christmas season and I recently had the opportunity to watch a screener of Christmas with a Capital C, starring Daniel Baldwin and Ted McGinley.  Christmas with a Capital C is GMC’s first Christmas movie.  GMC is America’s favorite channel for uplifting music and family entertainment.  The movie premieres Sunday, December 5th at 7 pm ET/4 pm PST and repeats several times.  Be sure to check your local listings.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, but holiday traditions are under attack when lawyer Mitch Bright returns to his hometown of Trapper Falls, Alaska.  Residents of the small town who once looked forward to each year with enthusiasm and taking great care to drape the town with Christmas cheer every season, find themselves in the heat of a legal battle with a former member of their community.  Christmas with a Capital C stars Daniel Baldwin (Cold Case) as Mitch Bright and Ted McGinley (Married with Children) as Mayor Dan Reed.  High School rivalry between the two re-ignite over a Nativity scene in the town square.  Nancy Stafford plays Reed’s wife.  Brad Stine plays Reed’s brother.  The movie is based on the song, “Christmas with a Capital C” by the Contemporary Christian band Go Fish.  The video featuring this song has received over 15 million views online.

“Christmas with a Capital C is based on what has been referred to as ‘the war on Christmas,'” said Leslie Chesloff, executive vice president, programming, GMC.  “The movie delivers provocative subject matter and rich performances by an ensemble cast of talented actors.  The quaint community and picturesque landscape of Seward, Alaska lent itself beautifully to the storyline of this movie,” she continued.

Christmas with a Capital C is written by Andrea Gyertson Nasfell and directed by Helmut Schleppi.  James Chankin, Michael Scott and David Cuddy are producers.


I thought this was a heartfelt and inspiring movie about the Christmas season.  Often we focus on gifts and parties when it comes to Christmas and we forget what it’s really about.  This movie is a great reminder of the meaning of Christmas.  Thanks to the GMC Channel for this review opportunity!

I received a screener of “Christmas with a Capital C” from the GMC Channel to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
