The Knight Before Christmas
This clever movie title hones in on the magic of Christmas. The 2019 Netflix film starring Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Whitehouse features a school teacher who has seemingly given up on the idea of a fairytale love. When she accidentally hits a man with her car during a snowstorm, however, she takes him in to her care to allow time for his head injury to heal. The guy she hit? Well, he’s under the impression that he’s a knight in shining armor from the thirteenth century. Except…he is. Cole (Whitheouse), has been teleported from medieval days to the modern day on a secret quest. The purpose of that quest? To open his heart to love. The Knight Before Christmas is full of love, laughter and most importantly: magic.
He's her knight in shining armor.
No, seriously. He's a medieval knight transported to modern day and she's got to help get him back to his own time.
