Christmas movies aren’t always about families getting together, sometimes they’re about learning things about your family that you never thought could be true. Justin Hartley is coming back to your screens in the upcoming holiday movie, The Noel Diary. This movie will be directed by Charles Shyer, who has been the mastermind behind movies like Father of the Bride (1991), Alfie (2004), The Parent Trap (1998), Private Benjamin (1980), and other award-winning movies.
This time around, Shyer is adapting Richard Paul Evans’s book, The Noel Diary: from the Noel Collection. Adaptations can often be a hit or miss, but with Shyer’s expertise and a brilliant cast, there’s no way The Noel Diary won’t be a blockbuster hit. There are several interesting things about this movie and we’re here to tell you all about it. Here’s everything you need to know about The Noel Diary, from the plot to the cast, to the release date and much more:

The Noel Diary revolves around the best-selling author, Jake Turner, who receives some upsetting news around the holiday season. Jake’s mother had passed away and now he must take a trip to his childhood home, clearing out all the memories from all these years. It doesn’t sound quite upsetting, to begin with, but things take a turn for the better when he runs into the beautiful Rachel who is on a mission of her own. While Jake is grieving the loss of his mother, Rachel is eager to find out more about her mother, who supposedly worked for Jake’s parents at the time.
Although Rachel and Jake don’t have a lot in common, they don’t have unanswered questions of their own, and they decide to take this journey together. In the meantime, the two develop a bond, and we sense an intense romance brewing between these two attractive people. Plus, it’s the Christmas season, and the movie would be incomplete without some cheesy moments sprinkled across. When the two come across Noel’s diary, will they be a step closer to finding out everything that they began this journey for?
The role of Jake Turner will be played by none other than Justin Hartley. Justin is best known for his performance in the popular TV show, This Is Us. He has a way of portraying the deepest of emotions while also being charming. There’s no one better who would possibly take on this role. Barrett Doss will be playing the role of Rachel. She’s an actress and singer best known for her work on the show, Station 19. We already know that Hartley and Doss will have some great chemistry and look great standing next to each other. It’ll be interesting to see how they work on screen!
As for the other cast members, they consist of some incredibly talented actors and actresses who will be great at supporting our two main leads. We have Bonnie Bedelia, James Remar, Treat Williams, Essence Atkins, Aaron Costa Ganis, and many more. This movie will be emotional, heartfelt, and occasionally funny, and we can trust this versatile cast to do justice to Shyler’s vision of this adaptation.
The Noel Diary is releasing just in time to get you into the Christmas spirit. Luckily, viewers won’t have to wait until Christmas day to watch this movie. The Noel Diary is releasing on the 24th of November, exactly a month before Christmas Eve! The movie will be available worldwide and exclusively stream on Netflix. So if you haven’t renewed your subscription yet, now is the time!
Justin Hartley ages like fine wine and the official trailer for The Noel Diary is proof of that. The trailer boasts beautiful production as Christmas is nearing but there’s also a hint of sadness given the circumstances. However, what steals the show is the little moments between Hartley and Doss that have made everyone’s hearts fill with happiness and hope this holiday season. There’s no doubt that The Noel Diary will become a fan favorite this holiday season.
There are several components of the trailer and we can see that emotions are running high. We also see a glimpse of the diary, around which the entire movie is set. By the looks of it, although there will be romance and laughter, the main purpose of the movie is the destination that these two characters are aiming to reach and the beautiful journey that will lead them there.
We can’t get enough of all the holiday movies releasing in 2022, and The Noel Diary will be an exciting addition to Netflix’s list this season. If you’re in for a little bit of humor, romance, and emotions, then this movie will be perfect for you. Make sure you grab your warmest blanket, some hot chocolate, and your loved ones before streaming The Noel Diary on Netflix.
