What Is LGBTQ Christmas Movie Dashing In December About?
According to People, the Paramount LGBTQ Christmas movie, Dashing In December, has the same sort of story you expect to see in any traditional holiday movie. This is the story of Wyatt (Porte), who heads back home to the family ranch for the Christmas holiday.
He is on a mission. Wyatt wants his mom Deb (MacDowell) to sell the ranch. This is too much work for her, and Wyatt has zero interest in maintaining such a labor intensive property. Besides, he is searching for more, and Wyatt doesn’t think he is going to find it in his old small town.
Wyatt had shun his cowboy boots for the sleek look of the successful New York City financier he has become. So, Wyatt is quite surprised when he meets Heath (Di Pace), who loves the ranch and living in the country. Heath has found his perfect place. Unlike Wyatt, he is not searching for more to make him happy. This makes Wyatt start to take stock of his surroundings.
Some of those surroundings includes running into Heath outside of the bathroom, and around the ranch. The two certainly find each other attractive, but Wyatt thinks it is only on his end. That is, until his friend Blake Berry (Caroline Harris, Westworld) points out that the feeling is definitely mutual. “You’re not really that clueless, are you?”
Turns out, those greener pastures were right there in Wyatt’s home town. He didn’t have to go any further to find his heart and happiness.
