Great feel good story
31 December 2019 | by bindonjsSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. Well acted, with characters who were believable and sincere. The story was based on a best selling book, and had a more interesting plot than most recent Christmas movies. While the ending was predictable, it was so heartfelt and sweet, I had tears in my eyes.
