Holiday in the Wild

Whether you’re in New York or on an African safari, the spirit of Christmas has no boundaries.

What’s it about: Kate Conrad (Kristin Davis) is a Manhattanite who is about to go through a major change. Her son, Luke (John Owen Lowe), leaves for college, crushing Kate’s spirits. To help her adjust to life without her son, she books a second honeymoon with her husband, Drew (Colin Moss). However, things take a turn for the worst when Drew tells Kate that he doesn’t love her anymore, ending their marriage.

Rattled, Kate decides to go on the second honeymoon to Africa by herself. While flying through Zambia, Kate helps her pilot, Derek Holliston (Rob Lowe), rescue an orphaned baby elephant. With a newfound sense of meaning, Kate decides to help nurse the elephant back to life at a local sanctuary, extending her stay through Christmas time.

As she becomes closer to the elephants, Kate also develops feelings for Derek. Will she make this a permanent vacation or return home to New York?

Why you should stream Holiday in the Wild: Most of the newer romantic Christmas movies have younger casts so it’s refreshing to see a love story with adults. Plus, Rob Lowe and Kristin Davis are veterans of the rom-com so their chemistry is undeniable.
