Slow moving but good
2 December 2001 | by (shreve, oh) – See all my reviews

The movie starts out slowly, but, gently evolves into a tale of overcoming past pain and disappointment. As with most Christmas stories the premise is sort of limited but has a great ending. Destined to become a classic, in my humble opinion.
