Exploring the possibilities of new beginnings and fresh starts, Hallmark's winter movies remind us that everybody has another chance for happiness.

In Unleashing Mr. Darcy, Love on the Slopes, and Frozen In Love characters learn to challenge preconceived notions of themselves and others while allowing themselves a fresh start.
