Netflix Original: A Christmas Prince (2017) **REVIEW**

If you are a fan of iZombie then you might recognize a special blonde beauty called Rose McIver. She plays Liv Moore, the zombie mortician. As you know she changes personality when she eats a brain and takes on the previous persons traits. It’s hysterical. But I’m not here to talk about iZombie. I am here to talk about Rose McIver’s new film – ‘A Christmas Prince’.

Amber, a junior editor for a magazine in New York. She is just looking for that break to become a real journalist. Until her boss calls her in to her office and tells Amber she need her to travel cover a scandal prince’s coronation. Only to end up sneaking into the castle and say she is the new tutor for Princess Emily. Where she meets the prince. Someone who seems not as the tabloids has described him as. He loves his sister, who is sick and wheelchair bound. Amber treats her like any other child which makes the Princess like her and she doesn’t like anyone. Princess Emily is quite rude but she is also very charming when she can be and she isn’t scared telling anyone to piss off.

But exactly how long would it take for Amber to get caught in her lie? And writing about the Prince at the same time lying about being the Princess tutor. We all know this is a recipe for disaster. But as we all know, we know exactly this type of films always ends in one way but we can’t stop watching it anyway.

‘A Christmas Prince’ is a fun film for the entire family but cause of the story I’d say dont let a child under 10 see it. It’s a really cute and fun film. Rose does a excellent job in her role as Amber as she always does when I see her in TV-shows or different films.

Who are the actors in this film and where do we know them from?

  • Rose McIver – Amber (The Lovely Bones, iZombie, Flowers in the Attic 2, The Piano)
