Storyline

Suffering from the loss of his only child, Stanley has secluded himself to a dark and lonely place. Sullen and without hope, he continues to hide from and neglect those he loves despite their attempts to reach out to him. In what seems to be the final days of their already strained marriage, his wife Lisa is presented with a strange gift; an old oil lamp from a far off land. Along with the lamp comes a mysterious messenger and and a question that causes them to search the depths of their hearts for what's truly important in life... If you could have anything you wanted, what would YOU ask for? Written by Joe Jestus

21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ahhh! One of those wonderful movies that just makes you feel good... and reminds you that the most important things in life are people and animals....you know... Love

Well written, good acting... particularly from Louis Gossett Jnr & L. Scott Caldwell but also from the two main characters and rest of the cast. Predictable? Perhaps... but didn't matter at all...

The addition of Rachel's character is inspired and the young actress who plays her does a sterling job.

The movie has a tangible "magical" quality throughout and does just what it set out to do..... remind us all to believe. Wonderful! thank you!
