Excellent Movie
12 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is definitely one of my favorite Christmas movies... 'Small Gifts' manages to be believable, warm and funny without being saccharine like so many other seasonal films. A modern day "Gift of the Magi" and a stroll down memory lane for anyone who has ever had to roll their pennies. Brenda Devine is just terrific as the mother-in-law without ever being cliché, and there is a wonderful chemistry between Jessica and Jeremy as Nora and Evan. Their financial obstacles are true-to-life and a subtle reminder amidst the ever escalating materialism of the holiday season that we need to remember the things in life that truly are important. This movie originates from New Brunswick, so there is a hospitable Maritime feel to it . It is a shame that it has not yet aired in the United States, I think there are many who would appreciate it. Well worth watching, and a true Canadian gem.
