‘A Rose For Christmas’: Hallmark’s New Movie, A Good One To Watch New Year’s Day, Starring Rachel Boston

A Rose for Christmas is a new original movie drama that will premiere this New Year’s Day. Hallmark Channel has already finished up its “Countdown to Christmas.” But Hallmark fans need not worry as Hallmark has a slew of good family movies slated to air this up coming year.

A Rose for Christmas was directed by Kevin Fair and written by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer. It stars Rachel Boston and Marc Bendavid, according to It’s a Wonderful Movie.


A Rose For Christmas Movie Synopsis

Andy is a talented artist at Sunshine Floats, the family’s float business. Working under the direction of her father, Andy is surprised when she has to step into a managerial position after her father becomes ill. This is a major task, but it’s one that she has no doubt she’ll be able to execute.

The pressure is on to oversee a float operation for the upcoming Rose Parade. This time, she must build a float for Cliff, a hotshot executive who is both demanding and serious about his job. Plus, he’s up for a promotion and has everything riding on the success of this float.

To make sure everything is done to perfection, he often drops in to see how production is going. This certainly annoys Andy since she is not one to like being micromanaged.

In addition to the added pressure of Cliff’s unwanted and surprising appearances, everything seems to go wrong just when Cliff is looking on. To him, making a float doesn’t seem too difficult of a task. However, he has no idea how much work Andy puts into making the perfect float.

Cliff is not used to working with a woman in this line of work. No wonder his attitude comes across as unreasonable and insistent.

But as Cliff and Andy continue to work together on this project, something unbelievable happens between them. They began to see that despite their many differences, they actually have more in common than they once thought.

Not only do they share commonalities, sparks of romance began lighting their path. Soon this floating duo is on cloud nine as they realize that magic is bringing them closer together. But when Cliff’s boss comes into town and sends Cliff away, their relationship and the delivery of the float in time for New Year’s is in jeopardy.
