Holiday romance fix: Netflix's latest Christmas flick has a distinctly Northern Ontario vibe

That's because it was filmed, in part, in North Bay

Fell in love with "A Christmas Prince" on Netflix? Be prepared to fall in love all over again with the streaming platform's latest holiday-themed movie, "Christmas Inheritance," which was filmed in North Bay this past spring.

The flick was released worldwide on Netflix on Dec. 15 in 190 countries (and in multiple languages).

“We're very excited about this,” said David Anselmo, president of production with Sudbury's Hideaway Pictures, and the producer of "Christmas Inheritance."

“I believe you will recognize North Bay and a lot of North Bay faces," Anselmo said. "We're very excited about possibly doing more of these in the future and just continuing the growth of the film industry in the North.”

The film's synopsis is as follows: Before ambitious heiress Ellen Langford can inherit her father's gift business, she must deliver a special Christmas card to her dad's former partner in Snow Falls, the hometown she never knew.

When a snowstorm strands her at the town inn, she's forced to work for her keep, and in the process, finds romance and discovers the true gift of Christmas.

Directed by Ernie Barbarash, the film stars Australian actress Eliza Taylor as Langford.

Other names on the cast list you might recognize are well-known American actress Andie MacDowell as Debbie Collins and Canadian actress Mag Ruffman (best known as Aunt Olivia on CBC's "Road to Avonlea") as Kathy Martin.
