A Very Merry Mix-Up (2013)
This cozy story was created for those who like to watch kind movies while wrapped in a soft blanket, drinking hot chocolate. A girl named Alice is going to meet her fiancé’s parents on Christmas.

The Princess Switch (2018)
It’s a wonderful film for those who want to have a romantic atmosphere on Christmas Eve. Duchess Margaret and the simple Stacy, from Chicago, are like 2 peas in a pod. An innocent idea to swap places turns into a gift from destiny (with the help of a little magic, of course).
Bridget Jones’s Baby (2016)
It’s been 12 years since we last saw our beloved Bridget Jones on the big screen.

This film is light and funny, and if you like warm and soulful stories with happy endings, it’s just what you need.

And hundreds years afterward, these miracles still make us do good things and never give up.
