This is a good, heart to heart, Christmas Movie - go see it with a friend. The movie starts out a little slow for my taste but it develops the characters pretty well and you get a feeling of strong family and community. The main character is a bit of a snobby guy and unrealistic in his expectations. But overall the movie is much better than expected.
This movie was shot on Hi-Def Sony equipment and is being distributed digitally. It is worth seeing how a small-budget independent film can have the look and feel of a Hollywood big-budget film - the film is attractive visually and the sound great when viewed in a digital, surround sound theater.
I believe when compared to all movies the rank is 5/6 but for a family Christmas Movie it is a 7.5 to 8.
