Love what it has to teach us.
Christmas is being taken away from us and our young children at a fast rate. I loved what this story was teaching. Bring God and all his goodness back to the American People. May God Bless You!

One of the best Christmas films I've ever seen!
A while ago, when I still had Cable, I watched The Perfect Gift on JCTV. I remember when I first saw it I really liked it, but I never got around to purchasing it. Years later, when trying to think up some good Christian Christmas movies for my upcoming movie night, this was one of the first thoughts of which I was reminded. However, I didnÃ¢ÂÂt completely remember why I had enjoyed watching Jefferson MooreÃ¢ÂÂs The Perfect Gift so I had to re watch it again in order to properly write this review.
The Perfect Gift contains multiple stories, which all revolve around a drifter named Jes. Maxine is a spoiled rotten girl who is forced to make some new adjustments with Dad and his money no longer being in the picture. MaxineÃ¢ÂÂs mother also has a burden forced upon her, but this momÃ¢ÂÂs trouble involves planning a politically correct celebration called Ã¢ÂÂThe Winter GalaÃ¢ÂÂ. Tony is an over burdened, Assistant Pastor who is in the process of setting up a Nativity Scene outside of the church; he also wishes the church was doing better. Blaine is an Atheist who is the head of an activist organization which claims to promote Ã¢ÂÂreligious freedomÃ¢ÂÂ. Jes is a drifter who peacefully arrives into town who looks a lot like Jesus Christ, is mysteriously a great carpenter, has a gift of wisdom, and somehow directly and indirectly affects the lives of all of these people and the rest of the town itself. What sort of lessons will everyone learn, and what makes ChristmasÃ¢ÂÂ¦ well Christmas?
After watching this I remembered why I LOVED The Perfect Gift. This movie is wonderful for many reasons, and certainly puts many Holiday Fluff films out there to great shame! One of my favorite reasons for enjoying this movie was the deep theological messages contained within the film without the actors hammering it into your skull. I was especially enamored with the way the townspeople respond to Blaine; it was awesome!!! Jefferson Moore is great as Jes, because he is able to cultivate a variety of moods appropriately, and I also liked how he passionately talked about MaryÃ¢ÂÂs journey to Bethlehem and what he said to Blaine. In fact most of the actors did very well; Christine Fougnie wasnÃ¢ÂÂt the best at first but got better with each scene. The story is very clever and quite realistic, and this was even funny at times. I am amazed I didnÃ¢ÂÂt buy this sooner or tell people about this any sooner. I very strongly recommend this movie for your collection; especially if you like Christmas movies.
