Hallmark Including More Romances Between Older People

Falling in love isn't reserved for only the young, and Hallmark knows it.  During the 2021 Christmas season, we've watched romance blossom for more "mature" couples than in past years.  

  • In Next Stop, Christmas, Lea Thompson, age 60, and her on-screen husband rediscover each other, even though their love story is secondary to their daughter's. 
  • Olivia Washington's divorced parents in A Holiday in Harlem fall in love with each other again. 
  • James Denton and Teri Hatcher are the romantic focus of A Kiss Before Christmas, though both of them are pushing 60.
It's not new for Hallmark to include romance between older supporting actors, but in the past, it's been more of a fleeting glimpse rather than a steady focus.

In A Christmas Together With You, Harry Lennix plays Frank Emery, a man who has lived a full and happy life.  While his first crush, Claire, is the proverbial one who got away, he found love with someone else and had no regrets.  It's been a few years since his wife passed away when Frank stumbles upon an old picture of he and Claire, and he can't help but remember the love they once shared.


Megan has no plans for Christmas, and since she thinks of Frank as a father, she insists they take a trip to track down Claire.  Conflict arises when they find Claire, who is also widowed, but discover the hurt Frank inflicted many years ago is a major roadblock in reviving their relationship.

The love story is so centered on Frank and Claire that the growing feelings between Megan and Steve is almost an afterthought.  The familial affection Claire and Frank share is also a very sweet thread throughout the whole movie. 


Even with all the love flowing across the screen, Campbell's steals the spotlight in a big way with a whole segment devoted to their recipe for Green Bean Casserole.  We're also supposed to believe one small bowl of beans is going to be enough for 30 meals at the veteran's luncheon.  It's comedic!
