A Christmas to Remember (1978)

Directed by George Englund
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

A city boy is sent to live with his grandparents on a Minnesota farm. The grandmother welcomes him with open arms but grandpa is a more skeptical. It turns out they lost their own son years ago and he still hasn't worked it all out. When the boy starts seeing visions of the long-dead son, nobody believes him, except old grandpa in an unconvincing and a bit creepy ending. Jason Robards usually makes better choices for his roles, not much Christmas atmosphere either in this made-for-TV movie.
