A look at the inspiration behind Thomas Kinkade's painting The Christmas Cottage, and how the artist was motivated to begin his career after discovering his mother was in danger of losing their family home.
Marcia Gay Harden
A cynical journalist decides to take a train from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles for Christmas to get inspiration for a story in honor of his late father. He gets to know the other passengers and runs into an old flame while aboard.
I Have Reviewed OVER 500 Christmas MOVIES. On all Christmas movies BEWARE OF FAKE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. Many reviewers have only have ONE REVIEW. When it's a POSITIVE REVIEW chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. If its a negative review then they may have a huge grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films.
This is a short film running less than an hour but not a moment is waisted in the entire time.
In this film is set on Christmas Eve. The people board the plane and end up seeing themselves in other people. The majority of the film takes place after the passengers have to deplane. In the end they all form a family and we all realize (as an audience) that at times that God does exist and he works through people.
Some people we "Hate the religious part of the film" but come-on it is "A Christmas Theme Film". To me the message isn't overbearing and you are not hit over the head with it. What you get is how "We are not alone" and at times we all need help.
If you have the chance then see this. It is well worth an hour of your time!
