Yes, to this heartwarming movie
2 November 2019 | by BurberryGalSee all my reviews

This sweet movie really had me tearing up with happy emotions throughout the entire movie. Please Do not listen to any of the negative reviews. This beautiful movie was tugging at my heartstrings from the very beginning to the very end. Thank you for bringing up the importance of the elephant conservation and rescue to the forefront. We all could learn more about this cause. Add in Rob Lowe and Kristen Davis and it's a truly adorable and fun holiday movie to watch and enjoy. Would love to see a sequel!!
