Grab some comedy. Some drama. Eerie winter landscapes. And Christmas lights. Roll up into one giant snow ball And throw at best friend.
That's what it felt like to me, watching the full-length preview screener of Noelle.
For a pic set in a religious world I found it refreshing that it was unafraid to poke fun of the foibles of its own, while at the same time upholding its faith and values.
It's the best of the bunch so far to come out of the recent stream of "faith-based" films, as it seems like the director actually knew what he was doing with the camera and a myriad other things in his story-telling choices.
Acting is great. No, really. You can tell they're doing more than spitting out memorized lines from the script. They are actually inhabiting the characters they are playing! (Yes, these guys actually took the time to find real actors who have worked on their craft.)
Music is hauntingly beautiful.
Cinematography... let's say the director didn't hire no idiot. It's great. It delivers.
