Home by Christmas 2006

Home By Christmas     Julie Bedford thinks everything is fine with her life.  Her husband has a good job and she he doesn’t need to work.   She does charity work and she belongs to a book club plus she has a lot of friends.  She finds a note in her husband’s pocket that changes her life.  Her husband wants a divorce and he’s been seeing a younger woman.  Julie is struggling, she moves with her teenage daughter to another apartment and she gets a job.  Her daughter Brittney is not adjusting to the changes very well.  Brittney feels like everything happening to her is some kind of punishment against her alone.  Julie is doing the best she can but Brittney wants to live with her father and his new girlfriend during the week so she can go back to her home and go back to her former school.  Julie should have asked for more money and the house during the divorce negotiations but she wanted everything settled right away. 
     Julie starts to have many problems, it’s not very long until she’s robbed of the little settlement money she has left plus her credit cards.  The mugging puts her in the hospital and she doesn't have medical insurance.  This film has a good message that feels very real and the events could possibly happen to anyone.  I think I've seen this before but not recently.  3 1/2* (I liked this movie)
