Though I'd have preferred a real forest to a stage set, this is beautifully and believably produced I believe men would watch and relate as well as women, youth, children. To me it was a quieter and more profound genre like an American Girl movie. The actors are appealing, and the two main adults are famous. I liked Tom Berenson's performance very much. And since her famous actress sister Natasha, wife of Liam Neeson, passed early from a skiing accident, it is a gift the world still has the elegant grace and beauty of Joeley Richardson as in her classic film "The Patriot." The boy actor more natural than most is endearing. And the simple story is profound and emotionally connects us past 21st Century static to a simpler yet in some ways more challenging time, and to what is most important and to appreciate in this thankfully temporary fallen world earthly life. I liked passing it on as a gift, and I may purchase more to give to families and church schools. Be blessed :)

This is a great movie for all ages! Five Stars! I want to encourage the producer and writer to make more Christmas movies, like this, but please witness a little more....Jesus didn't stay a baby and He came for a very special reason....John 3:16 KJV. Please make more encouraging, uplifting movies that are rated NR, or G. Also, please make Easter and Thanksgiving themed movies, which sweetly weave the reasons for the seasons into the movies. I pray that God richly blesses you, as you shine His love!
