Trivia

Regarding "Buttons" in the title of the film: As explained in the movie, the young children and orphans who are sent to work at the cotton mill are too small to use the factory equipment, so they are tasked with sewing buttons onto garments. Young Annabelle lacked the skills to use the sewing machines and other equipment so she was put with these younger children, sewing buttons onto fabric with no pay. A group of "bully" girls gave Annabelle the nickname "Buttons." See more »

What a great new Christmas movie and you can't go wrong with talented actors like Dick van Dyke and Angela Lansbury. While it is a great family movie, I think older children would enjoy more so than younger ones who tend to prefer animated movies. Mr. Tim Janis did a wonderful job in directing this film. I got the digital version and have watched it several times already.
