If you loved The Christmas Box you will love Timepiece..., 2 August 2003
Author: Tim from Akron, Ohio

Timepiece is one of those movies that you get hooked into.

The follow-up to The Christmas Box TV-movie does not disappoint, Timepiece is a gentle but powerful story. Has a great cast with James Earl Jones leading the way.. A must see during the holiday season!!!!
