A+ performance, historical tear jerker with a happy, inspirational twist!
I had the pleasure of seeing this movie (which was sold out) on opening night at the big screen with some family. I felt the need to write a review because I was certainly drawn in and engaged the entire movie. Firstly, I had never heard of this particular movie production group so because I was that impressed by their work, I am writing this review. My hope is that people will side step the assumption that because it’s low budget, or because the production team is not Hollywood grade, it’s not worth seeing. Instead, my hope is they will consider heading to the theaters to give this production group a chance. The acting was amazing, the music was on point and added to the dramatic effect of the movie. The plot line was not rushed or crammed, and faith, religion was included but not overly extensive. I was most impressed with the music, coloring, the landscape and overall the performance of the actors. I loved that the movie centered around Christmas but approached with a different perspective, rather than just the general jolly happy nature that Christmas movies usually display. Be warned, you may feel a rush of emotion due to the sad nature of what inspired this movie to begin with. The fact the team did a fantastic job to even produce emotions in the audience is why it’s worth being an addition to your Xmas movie list this year! Great job Sight and Sound I really look forward to more of your work in the near future.
Very Well Done!
This is Sight & Sound’s first big film, they usually only do the big plays. For it being their first film it was a great production.
The film helps you better understand Longfellow’s poetry and what was going on at the time for him to write it.
It had a great cast, I think not having a big name cast helped the film very well. Great costumes as well.
Usually films like this often “forget” the children exist – not so here and I am so glad they were present throughout the film.
I hope Sight & Sound continues to make more films! Can’t wait to see what they do next!
