I truly enjoyed the film. The cinematography was beautiful. Brad Fisher was wonderful as Marcus. I could feel his pain at the loss of his wife & his hope in making Santa Croce a better place through this "miracle". His love for his children, and the underlying conflict with his oldest daughter were evident.

It made me remember how I felt when finding out there really was no Santa Clause and the clinging to hope that Alison felt as she tried to prove that there was.

All the characters gave heart-felt performances! It was an absolute pleasure to watch!
