Nice Little Film
8 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Truly a classic by one of Canada's finest authors Ten-year-old Sal is disappointed when she and her parents spend Christmas at her grandmother's house, instead of at home, like they did before Grandpa died.

What is nice about this film is that not everything is spelled out to the viewer. It lets you in its world and lets your create the ending you want. The acting is very good. The film makers did a wonderful job. This film is usually comes in a DVD set with other films.

This film is worth seeking out. Running Time is 20 minutes. Its 20 minutes of magic.
