Directed by Tosca Musk. With Emma Rigby, Peter Porte, Sarah Stouffer, Marc Barnes. Angie works hard to run her uncle's events business while her cousin Candace takes the credit. When Angie takes a night off to have fun at the Christmasquerade Ball, the mask and gown allow her to let loose, and she quickly catches the eye of Nicholas, a wealthy local bachelor. But then Angie has to go before revealing her identity, leaving Nicholas searching for his mystery woman in this modern take on the classic fairytale.
So, yeah, my sappy holiday movie marathon on the Lifetime/Ion networks continues. This one isn’t quite as sappy and dreadful as most and may be one of the better one’s I’ve seen in the genre. Despite a few small soft spots in the plot this one is relatively redeeming. Dare I admit I’ve seen it twice in almost as many days now??
As I look at the credits after the fact, it dawns on me that I tangentially knew the director back in the day through a friend at Hopkins.
