Short but sweet Christmas film
10 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

This live action film has pretty much a one dimensional plot. And that is appropriate...this didn't have to be stretched out into a feature length film. The story idea is good, they develop the idea nicely and then pull off an unexpectedly effective "goose bumps" inducing, moving, emotional ending. A 10 year old girl (Megan Follows) is "forced" to spend "old fashioned" Christmas at her grandmother's house in the country, when she would rather be in the city celebrating a "modern Christmas" with her young friends. While staying at her grandmothers She finds a coat that whisks her back to a Christmas past and she returns to the present with a new understanding and respect for her grandmothers view on christmas. Take one part "Back to the Future" add two parts of Dylan Thomas' "A Child's Christmas in Wales" and then streamline the storyline to fit into a 1/2 hour format and you have The Olden Days Coat. An excellent film to put on your family's Christmas schedule...but remember it is only 1/2 hour long!
