Very good FAMILY movie
19 December 2014 | by scottiejarrett7See all my reviews

Right you are, Golidog (review). I think "The Lamp" has been seriously underrated so far. I selected the film (On Demand) because Meredith Salenger was in the cast. As a teen, she was so enjoyable in "The Journey of Natty Gann." Here Cameron Ten Napel (Josh) is an equally marvelous child actor, with a range of believable emotions and a totally irresistible smile. I just kept thinking, "She is sooo cute!" Jason London, Louis Gossett Jr., and Muse Watson round out the excellent cast. "The Lamp" does exactly what it is supposed to do. How wonderful to find a family movie - with no curse words or sex scenes - just a sweet message that reaffirms the power of faith and love. I really like this film.
