Conclusions

We watched this film last year, one of those that we put on the TV as background noise and ended up for the most part just sitting and watching. So this Christmas, we made it an official Film Watch entry, and loved it all over again!

It’s just a nice, warm-hearted movie, with lots of nice people doing nice things (except the boyfriend), and learning lessons along the way.

God bless them all!

Rating: 5/5.
