A sumptuous production!
24 April 2012 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

Sons coming home for Christmas and their discoveries about themselves, their family, and their Source of inspiration leaves the watcher wondering about what they value most, who has influenced them. An excellent film to watch with your entire family. The acting, the wisp of humor, the characters are all captivating! The true story will and does inspire the artist in each of us to draw upon those experiences that change us. Abraham's devotion and Joseph's betrayal is tale that is known world round and this movie is a tribute to their victims and Bill Campbell who captures the character perfectly. This film carries in it the quality of "Its a Wonderful Life". A great holiday flick for the family.
