Great beyond my abilities...
27 December 2019 | by randytirazonaSee all my reviews

This is in fact - one of thee greatest Christmas movies of all time. I can't do it justice, you will have to judge for yourself. But here is what I think. Jeni Ross as "Hope" is a perfect choice for the lead role. With her performance she pulls everything together. Jennifer Gibsons' as Marianne poignant performance seals the deal. Tara Yelland as Hanna shows us the embodiment of "a woman." From the smallest details, to all the acting, direction and everything else that makes a movie - Everyone and Everything that had a part in this movie makes this a Legendary Christmas movie! Some say that because it touches upon this or that - makes it not a good Christmas movie. Yes - it does touch upon abuse and abandonment but more importantly it shows how the Spirit of Christmas... How love, giving and helping can help us all over come such devastating issues. It shows us what the Spirit of Christmas is and how the Spirit of Christmas helps us all.
