When Mandie Shaw is thrust into Miss Heathwood’s School for Girls at Christmastime, she struggles to grasp the boarding school’s new rules and the finer points of high society. As Mandie tries to stay out of hot water with Miss Heathwood and discover what the headmistress seems to have against Christmas, she stumbles upon a mystery in the school’s forbidden attic. Will Mandie ignore the warning to flee or try to get to the bottom of the strange noises beyond the boarded-up doors? Uncovering the truth may lead to telling a lie, but it might also unlock the memories of a long-forgotten Christmas.
Introducing Kelly Lynn Washington in the title role, Mandie and the Forgotten Christmas is the third film adapted from the Lois Gladys Leppard book series, which boasts over 7 million copies in print. The DVD includes behind-the-scenes videos and outtakes, a gallery of over 1,700 photos, and a printable discussion and activity guide for families.
