War, love, and Santa
24 December 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Smalltown U.S.A. celebrates Christmas with the hope that the boys will return home from the war. One family awaits the return of their eldest son to his pregnant wife while watching fearfully as a younger son prepares to leave for the front. Bittersweet, nostalgic look at a simpler, yet tragic, holiday season.
