Let It Snow is a Netflix Original film that follows a selection of younger people in a small town. It takes place during Christmas Eve, and is very much a generic festive tale. There are many perspectives, and the narrative obviously takes people on their own separate journeys with interaction points throughout.
It has what I would consider to be a fairly stacked Netflix cast, definitely many familiar faces from their shows or films. It’s quite interesting to have this bunch, lots of talent there quite honestly. The screen time is shared about equally, with each story having its own full development. I didn’t find it to be anything too interesting, but it hit the check boxes of what I’d expect for this type of movie.
There’s definitely a focus on love, coming together over the holidays and some laugh as well. I found some aspects funny, other moments a bit too sappy and overall it was definitely watchable. It also came together in a satisfying way, as there was a purpose to everything that was going on.
It’s hard to really go over the cast, because there are so many people involved here. There’s Angie (Kiernan Shipka) that’s paired off with Tobin (Mitchell Hope), he’s got a nipple that keeps bleeding. There’s something between them, and that’s JP (Matthew Noszka).
There’s also a singer that’s in town, a girl that just wants her boyfriend’s attention and her friend Dorrie (Liv Hewson) that’s into a lady that’s not out yet. There’s a DJ, a snow plowing lady with advice, and the list goes on. As you can tell, there are many layers and players involved here. Some roles are minor, others have more of a central focus. There’s a lot to it, that’s for sure.
Let It Snow is an alright Christmas movie that follows the sappy part of the holidays, and the relationships that could grow or shift in a single day. It has some moments that were charming, others that were funny. I wasn’t entirely engaged with all the stories that were present, but that’s how these types of films roll. There was some solid acting here, each character had a sense of progression and change as well.
It was a very large cast, and they managed to have the cast connect just enough for every one of the separate story lines to have a purpose in the overall tale. It wasn’t anything too spectacular, but perhaps worth a viewing if this is your type of thing. It’s got a lot of young talent in it, I’m very curious to see where everyone goes in the future as they definitely seemed to largely be folks from main Netflix Originals.
