The Christmas season is a time of redemption and forgiveness. This compelling story is a modern day musical version of the Nativity that not only tells of Jesus’ birth but also portrays a family that needs to be reborn through accepting forgiveness for the mistakes that they have made in the past. With the wonderful voices of Angela Bassett and Jennifer Hudson the songs convey many of the feelings of the characters in this charming family film.In troubled times a young boy is sent off to his grandparents’ home to meet them for the first time. Little does he know that this turn of events will bring great changes to his life. He encounters many things and tries to find the answers as to why his family is estranged. But to his amazement all around him his Christmas wishes are granted through a miracle in the heart of Harlem. This is a charming musical that reveals the true meaning of Christmas. We are pleased to award this film the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12 and over.
