Day 2 - Joyeux Noel (2023)
Jennifer Says -
Joyeux Noel follows two reporters covering a holiday painting and the mystery behind the couple behind the photo. The mystery leads them to France and a Christmas Market, the perfect setting for romance.
The romanticizing, optimistic copy editor who wants her big break as a reporter is played by Jaicy Elliot you may recognize from Gray’s Anatomy. The grumpy, jaded journalist is played by Brandt Daughtry who was in Pretty Little Liars and other Hallmark movies.
This made my list since the actors have been in other Christmas movies I enjoyed. Particularly Jaicy from My Southern Family Christmas and Brandt from A Christmas Movie Christmas. I also love the fact that Jaicy is not a tall size 0, she is beautiful but is curvy, and on the shorter side which isn’t seen enough in romantic movie leads.
This was enjoyable. It highlighted French Christmas customs and the mystery and love story is sweet.
IMDB gave it 6.2 out of 10 Stars.
