Arkansas furniture maker Grins Jenkins is a cheerful man and loving father to his five kids, as well as the life of every party in their small town. When his wife Sharon, who used to be the 'bad cop', slowly dies of TBC, so does Grins' sense of fun. The kids refuse to keep mourning forever, but dad practically retires from the world and turns his back, opposing them enjoying life again. Then Christmastide arrives, and son Alvin refuses to let his kid brother's dream be spoiled. Written by KGF Vissers

A full box of tissues used!!
24 February 2001 | by pippa-5See all my reviews

A wonderful, wonderful film. Ostensibly a Christmas movie, this could be watched at any time of the year, time after time. A very moving portrayal of family life in the Appalachian Mountains in the 30's. Love is the key here, a husband's love for his wife, a father's love for a daughter and the children's love for their father. Very, very moving without being too sentimental. I defy anyone to watch it without shedding a tear or two. All the performances were first class, and it is the best thing Scott Bakula has done since Quantum Leap. Highly recommended.
