The film reminds some viewers of “A Timeless Christmas”

These aren’t the only movies where someone from the past travels into the future. Candace Cameron Bure starred in a Christmas movie called Journey Back to Christmas with a similar theme. This film also starred Oliver Hudson and Tom Skerritt. The synopsis reads, “A World War II-era nurse is timely transported to 2016 and meets a man who helps her discover the bonds of family and that the true meaning of Christmas is timeless.”
