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

Paper Angels is one of my Top Christmas Movies
6 January 2018 | by geheweSee all my reviews

This UP movie was a great surprise. Loved it from beginning to end. This is not the typical Christmas romance movie. A well written story with some thoughtful advice between the lead character and the teenage boy he plays basketball with. Their lives intertwine around a Salvation Army giving tree in which children's names are hung as "Paper Angels".

The lead is played well by Matthew Settle. I recognize his voice from "Band of Brothers" I think. The mom of the teenage boy is played by Josie Bissett who I recognized in being in an Episode of When Calls the Heart as AJ Foster. The teenage boy (Thomas) is the new kid and one of the basketball stars dislikes him and they play this high school drama up very well. Yes there is a teenage girl (Cassie). It is very well done. I notice a familiar face in a minor role. Delores Drake who plays a Salvation army worker.
