About ‘Love, Lights, Hanukkah!’

Preview – Love, Lights, Hanukkah! – Hallmark ChannelWatch a preview for “Love, Lights, Hanukkah!” starring Mia Kirshner and Ben Savage.2020-12-04T01:34:06Z

Hallmark’s synopsis for the movie reads: “As Christina prepares her restaurant for Christmas, a DNA test reveals that she’s Jewish! The discovery leads her to a new family and a new, unlikely romance over eight crazy nights.”

The movie stars Mia Kirshner, Ben Savage, and Marilu Henner, alongside Advah Soudack, David Kaye, Brandi Alexander, and Bradley Stryker. Ben Savage plays David, a restaurant critic who’s less-than-thrilled review leaves quite the negative impression on Mia Kershner’s Christina. She also meets her biological mother in a movie that changes a lot of things for her character practically overnight.

Insider notes that there’s a Menorah lighting ceremony that captures the magic of Hallmark just perfectly, and many viewers will be able to relate to Christina’s desire to integrate Jewish traditions in with her Christmas ones.

This is Hallmark’s first interfaith movie of 2020, following two in 2019: Holiday Date and Double Holiday.

Kirshner told Jewish Journal: “I feel very lucky to have gotten to do this film. I’m very proud of my Jewish culture and heritage and it’s really a pleasure for me to share that with a larger audience. My other reason for doing it is we’re living in challenging times. I wanted to do something that would make people feel good about their lives and themselves– Nothing too complicated or heavy.”

The movie is produced by Lighthouse Pictures, Inc. Executive producers are Jamie Goehring, Shawn Williamson, Joey Plager, and Ellie Kanner. The producer is Mick MacKay, Mark Jean is the director, and Karen Berger wrote the script. She also wrote Holiday Date in 2019, along with Just Add Romance. Her other Hallmark screenplays include All of My Heart: The Wedding, All of My Heart, All of My Heart: Inn Love, The Art of Us, Christmas at Grand Valley, A December Bride, and Love by Chance. 

After all of Hallmark’s Christmas movies are done, the romance movies aren’t over. The Hallmark Channel will be kicking off its Winterfest 2021 series of movies on January 2, 2020 at 9 p.m. Eastern. This will mark the Channel’s return to airing new movies on Saturdays at 9 p.m. rather than the 8 p.m. Eastern slot it’s been occupying for Countdown to Christmas.
