Kristoffer Polaha (“Life Unexpected,” “Ringer”), Lindy Booth (“The Librarians,” Dawn of the Dead) and Treat Williams (“Chesapeake Shores,” “Everwood”) star in “Rocky Mountain Christmas," as Hallmark Movies & Mysteries continues its annual Most Wonderful Movies of Christmas programming event. When recently-single interior designer Sarah (Booth) decides to get out of New York and back to her roots for the holidays, she returns to the Colorado dude ranch where she and her brother were raised by their Uncle Roy (Williams) and Aunt Beth, who passed away earlier in the year. Nursing her broken heart while taking on production of the town’s annual Christmas Parade, the arrival of movie star Graham (Polaha) as a guest at the ranch awakens something in each of them, as she shows him the ropes of being a ranch hand in exchange for his help in launching the Christmas parade.
Sarah relishes imposing some of the tougher aspects of ranch life on the GQ-handsome movie idol, like relegating him to the sparse bunk house rather than one of the more luxurious guest cabins. Their days are spent feeding and tending the animals, with Sarah teaching Graham how to mount and ride. He’s a great sport about everything she throws at him and despite his own hidden dislike of the Christmas holiday, he helps Sarah to put on a parade to remember. Graham’s beautiful co-star shows up at the ranch hoping to cozy up to him, but Graham is not interested; he’s recognized in Sarah something he’s never felt before, and Sarah starts to feel it too.
