One of the best Christmas films I've seen
28 December 2011 | by photographer_dude87See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite holiday films mainly because its magic is found in reality.. And the reality being pretty gloomy and straight forward... Which is basically the main character in this film. You don't have have Santa Claus.. No elves.. No talking snowman.. But you have Chicago in the winter.. You have this man's life during the holidays and how negatively meaningful it is to him.. And certain events wake him up.. And that is the true magic of Christmas.. Very well acted and directed.. Cast and crew did an amazing job indeed and it's quite simple in that sense that you find that magic right in front of you no matter how bad things can be.. And watching this film really shows that. I love it. What can I say. 10 out of ten .
