A Surprising Christmas Treat
23 December 2018 | by TheOpsdocSee all my reviews

This film was a real surprise. I expected a "Hallmark" type Christmas movie - nice, but shallow. Christmas Manger was a wonderful current day Christmas story. Given what must have been a very small budget and mostly unknown actors, there is a real depth to the story and the characters as the movie progresses. The main character is a senior man who recently lost his much loved wife. The story itself is about the redemption of flawed individuals that is so much a part of the promise of the Christmas manger.
