Lindsay Lohan gave her fans an early Christmas present when she shared the trailer for her upcoming celebratory film, which marks her return to the big screen after a long hiatus.
In Netflix’s Falling For Christmas, the actress plays a spoiled heiress who develops amnesia after a skiing accident.
Though Lohan is known for a variety of classic noughties films, including Mean Girls, Freaky Friday and Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, her last major role was in 2013’s erotic thriller The Canyons.
The trailer for her comeback film begins with Lohan’s character, Sierra Belmont, waking up to world-class service in a luxurious hotel room, while her voiceover says, “When people look at me, all they see is the hotel magnate’s spoiled daughter.
“I just want people to remember me, not just because of my last name.”
It seems her wish may come true when disaster strikes while she goes on a ski trip with her boyfriend.
After he proposes to her on a mountaintop, things go south when they are caught in a storm and she slips from his grasp and falls off the cliff edge.
She is later found by a cabin owner, played by Glee’s Chord Overstreet, who offers her a place to stay while she tries to regain her memories of the days leading up to Christmas.
As she prepares for the holiday season, the festive track Jingle Bell Rock plays in the trailer’s background, reminiscent of a classic scene in 2004’s Mean Girls where Lohan’s character performs a fast-paced dance with her friends for the school’s Christmas concert.
The upcoming celebratory film will also star Jack Wagner as her father Beauregard Belmont, George Young as her fiance and Olivia Perez as the lodge owner’s daughter.
