“Call Me Mrs. Miracle” (DVD)

The holidays can be a difficult time, especially for people who are feeling overwhelmed by the absence of a loved one. Perhaps it’s fate that brings together Holly, Jake, and J.R. A single aunt with a demanding job, Holly cares for her brother’s son Gabe while his father is deployed overseas. Jake, a single man who doesn’t celebrate Christmas, has just bet his whole career on his decision to stock his store with classic toys rather than the trendy new robot every kid wants. And Jake’s long-bereaved father, J.R., has withdrawn into himself ever since his wife’s death. Then again, perhaps these three people come together because of a sales clerk named Mrs. Merkle, who’s taking her misspelled nametag “Mrs. Miracle” very seriously. Intent on her own quirky agenda to save Christmas, Mrs. Merkle arranges repeated, seemingly chance meetings between each of these isolated characters, and an amazing thing starts to happen: they begin to discover that they’re not really alone, nor do they want to be. In the end, each of them realizes that bringing happiness to others makes oneself happy, and everyone ends up having the best Christmas they’ve had in years.  (www.amazon.com)
