The Christmas Setup - a Gay Holiday (Christmas) Romance Where a Mom Tries to Set Up Her Grown Up Gay Son With the Guy He Crushed on Back in High School

Another movie I watched and really enjoyed over break was The Christmas Setup on Lifetime. 

Here's the synopsis:

New York lawyer Hugo (Ben Lewis) who heads to Milwaukee with his best friend Madelyn (Ellen Wong) to spend the holidays with his brother Aiden (Chad Connell) and his mom Kate (Fran Drescher), who is also in charge of the local Christmas celebrations. Ever the matchmaker, Kate arranges for Hugo to run into Patrick (Blake Lee), Hugo’s high school friend and secret crush, who has recently returned after a successful stint in Silicon Valley. As they enjoy the local holiday festivities together, Hugo and Patrick’s attraction to each other is undeniable and it looks as though Kate’s Santa-style matchmaking is a success. But as Hugo receives word of a big promotion requiring a move to London, he must decide what is most important to him.

And here's the trailer:


After a lifetime of watching hetero romance holiday movies, this was so cool and affirming - and really sweet!

The light in me recognizes and acknowledges the light in you,

Looks like I need to subscribe to Lifetime to show my appreciation.
