Touching story, well acted...
9 December 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have enjoyed this TV movie found it touching and well acted. The actor playing Mike deserves an Oscar even though I have never heard of him. May be a bit overdone and too sentimental, but then this is a Christmas story...
