Review

Our Score
In this sweet seasonal romance, the charming Mary Stuart Masterson (Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe) turns in a winning performance as a professional pickpocket who, along with her adopted six-year-old niece, gets nabbed on Christmas Eve. Luckily for the larcenous pair, they are caught by a sympathetic department store security guard (Mark Ruffalo), who is given the task of watching the lawbreakers over the holidays and takes them into his home. As holiday specials go, this one is heart-warming, as it should be; although no new ground is broken, Masterson's charisma and that of her young co-star carry the day.

Summary

A woman and her niece are caught stealing just before Christmas, and face the prospect of spending the festive season in the care of social services - until a kindly shop worker volunteers to put them up. Romantic drama, starring Mary Stuart Masterson and Mark Ruffalo.
