Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
There is another film out by the same name which I caught by accident. What that film did was to expose the superiority of this one. This cast was comprised of veteran pros and lesser known but up and coming at the time (now most have achieved a measure of fame probably never expected by them!). As ensembles go it was really delightful. As messages go it was both touching and beautifully presented.
Very simple in the manner of less splashy Christmas tales. The storyline makes sense and relies on no fancy gimmicks or icky plot turns.
Heartwarming and simple and a lovely cast. It's a keeper.
