OWN’s A Sisterly Christmas: Filming Locations and Cast Details

Directed by Jerry LaMothe, ‘A Sisterly Christmas’ is a warm and fuzzy Christmas-themed comedy movie. The fun Oprah Winfrey Network original drama revolves around two sisters who have been at odds since the death of their mother. They are polar opposites – while one loves everything about Christmas, the other is a bit of a Scrooge. On the eve of Christmas, they come closer upon the surfacing of a shared childhood enemy, who is now a famed Broadway singer.

Families come first in this festive-themed drama, and the decorated ambiance is a treat for the eyes. Most of the storyline unravels in a holiday resort as the sisters hit the jackpot when their aunt sends them on vacation together. But you may want to identify the locations where the movie was filmed and learn more about the cast ensemble. Without further ado, let us get to the specifics.
