Silver Bells

Why We're Feeln It

Based on the novel by Luanne Rice, this holiday tale stars Anne Heche and Tate Donovan, who play a widow and widower filled with grief and doubt as Christmas approaches. But overall, it is an uplifting story of love, hope, and finding the "silver bells" in life.


It's the Christmas season, but Christopher ("Christy") hasn't felt much joy since his wife died. When business brings him and his two children from Nova Scotia to New York, his all-work attitude causes a fallout between them. Meanwhile, Catherine is finding her "Look Up" project for a Manhattan art museum personally challenging. The project urges New Yorkers to look upward and experience the holidays in a new way, a difficult notion for a woman struggling through her third Christmas since losing her husband to cancer. Although their paths cross often, Catherine and Christy remain emotionally isolated. But when a crisis draws them together, they finally begin to rediscover faith, hope, and love.
