Storyline

Darryl Brandt fails as family father due to alcohol abuse rendering him somewhat mean and utterly lazy. Without proper plan or consulting the kids, wife Lynn sneaks out for good on Christmas. She takes a measly waitress job, model son must rebuild his life and still tries to be a substitute father for spoiled little sister Sara. Thomas get picked beyond newbie-hazing at in high-school when the cool kids find out his family is dead-poor, jocks top-dog Vic West even makes it a personal vendetta when AAs-'nerd' Thomas tries out for 'his' basketball team and is at least as good at that too. Kevin Morrell, who wrestles with a business in trouble and a problem twins pregnancy, seeks solace by returning to pastor and team coach Graham Cody's big brother program and becomes Thomas's mentor. At Christmas, things get complicated around the Salvation Army's Paper Angesl program to anonymously fulfill poor kids' wishes.. Written by KGF Vissers

Very inspiring, as all Christmas movies should be
6 February 2017 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Thomas (Rustin Gresiuk) is a transplanted high schooler with difficult circumstances. His mother Lynn (Josie Bissett) left his abusive and alcoholic father days ago, taking Thomas and his younger sister with her, in secret. Now, they live in a dumpy apartment and are among the poorest kids at school. Yet, Thomas understands and wants to be part of forging a new life for his family. Meanwhile, a local businessman, Kevin (Matthew Settle), a devout Christian whose wife is expecting twins, has had some setbacks in his company. Clients have withdrawn in bad economic times and he's uncertain if he can gain new ones. Not only this, but one of the twins is having some difficulties, according to the doctor. Its no surprise when Matt's wife is put on bed rest. Sensing his increased stress level, the wife encourages Kevin to go back to coaching high school level basketball at the local teen charity organization. He does and he runs into Thomas, where they become friends. But, more heartache awaits Thomas. He is being bullied at school, even to crossing heads with another talented roundball player. Then, his hard working mother announces that her kids must make a Christmas list, as the only gifts they will receive are from a "paper Angel" tree, where those with the means help those more unfortunate. How humiliating for Thomas! This nice Christmas film looks like a romance on the cover but its not. The main star is Gresiuk, who shines as the truly "good kid" Thomas. Settle is fine as the stressed impending father while Bissett is good as the woman who struggles to restart her life. All of the rest of the players, sets, costumes, script and direction are above average, too. Best of all, Paper Angels is about bringing Christ-like spirit to Christmas and everyday living, too. We can all use an inspirational film like that!
