Doggone it! “Charlie’s Christmas Wish” is a delightful heartwarming family film

It’s never too early to start making that list you always put off until it’s (almost) too late.

Just in time for the holidays comes a feel-good family film starring a loveable dog: Charlie’s Christmas Wish. Awarded the Dove Seal of Approval for All Ages, the flick unwraps on DVD, Digital and On Demand November 10 from Lionsgate. Aiden Turner, Lindsey McKeon, Jay M. Brooks and Diane Ladd star in this heartwarming tale.

A troubled war vet’s family finds new hope from a scrappy little rescue dog. Discharged and sent home for the holidays, John (portrayed by Turner) tries hard to adapt to civilian life—and to son Jimmy’s new pet, a feisty terrier named Charlie. As the family meets other struggling local veterans, they know it’ll take a miracle to bring peace to them and to John. Good thing Charlie has a direct line to the Man Upstairs . . .
