"Love Triumphs over political correctness." --Movieguide

Product Description

In the same tradition of family-friendly holiday films as Deck The Halls, A Christmas Carol and A Wonderful Life, Christmas with a Capital C was awarded the Dove Foundation's "Family Seal of Approval" and is recommended for all ages. Christmas will never be Christmas again if Lawyer Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin) has his way. For the mayor, Dan Reed (Ted McGinley), and the townsfolk of Trapper Falls; they face their toughest challenge in a legal battle with one of their former native sons as they struggle to keep fifty years of tradition and the spiritual fabric of this joyous season alive. In the heat of this legal battle the town discovers the secret behind Mitch's return, Dan's wife Kristen (Nancy Stafford) and their daughter Makayla (Francesca Derosa) show the true meaning of Christmas by launching an inspired "Christmas with a Capitol C" campaign to keep the town together and remind them all that "with the arrival of God's Son, peace on earth and good will was given to all. Even to those whose heart seemed closed to Him."

Bonus Features include Director's Commentary, Trailers, Behind The Scenes, Making of 'Christmas With A Capital C,' Documentary of Highway 101 (Back Down The Highway), Highway 101 Music Video - "Six Gold Coins".

Received 4 out of 5 Doves, awarded the Dove Foundations 'Family Seal of Approval' and recommended for ages 12 and over.

KNOW it is a Christian DVD. PURE/FLIX is a Christian distributor. Christians making a faith-based film. Excellent actors in a good Christian tale written by Andrea Gyertson Nasfell. A story with a moral meaning, but don't confuse that with the politics also included.

There's teenage romance, a Mayor's race, a ski race, and Mitch (Daniel Baldwin, yes Alec's bro) returns after 20 years to oppose the long-time Mayor's (Ted McGinley) reelection as well as City Hall's use of a "Merry Christmas" banner and an antique local Alaskan's nativity carving. More than the "Merry Christmas" vs "Happy Holiday" issue is a greater theme of "goodwill to all men" & "peace on Earth."

Two magnificent aspects shine like tree-topping angels.
First is the filming location of Seward, Alaska; converted to Trapper Falls, small town of 4000 and home of moose burgers. Scenery is breathtaking. Local Alaskan's know that.
Second is an absolute show-stopper performance in a scene when the Mayor's brother, Greg (Brad Stine-Christian comedian) explains the Christ birth story to 3 youth. He rolls, an animated Christian Christmas fanatic, ranting like Robin Williams, and stealing the best segment of the entire film. It was intentional, as much of the segment was taken from his stand-up comedy routine, written into the film by the writer.

The film ends with the spectacular scene of the life-size hand carved town's crèche (now privately owned and displayed) set up with Alaskan mountains as a backdrop. Credits roll including "It's Called Christmas with a Capital C" music by Go Fish, a song the movie was based upon.
The 81 min. film does have SUBTITLES and a Dove Approval.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film that deserved theater release. August 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered Christmas with a Capital C, however I have seen it twice on GMC-TV last year. It is a shame this film did not have theater release as it definitely deserved to make all the major theaters across America plus have over seas distribution. It is an excellent film with a top cast and it cannot be praised enough. It mirrors the on going war we have against Christmas in our nation today and is so very well handled. There is a tendency for reviewers to be spoilers when it comes to films and I do not want to do that. Suffice it to say that while every cast member does an outstanding job, Nancy Stafford stands out and I believe would have been up for an Academy Award. Her thoughtful observations are a center piece in this film and I will be urging all of our friends to purchase it on November 1. We even asked for one day delivery so we could begin showings as quickly as possible. My copy will be used in Bible Studies and I will be encouraging local churches to show it in the theater format it so richly deserves. Wish we could give more than five stars as this film deserves top honors.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Insightful Movie that Makes the Point with Class October 19, 2011
Format:DVD
This is an engaging and heart warming movie dealing with the ongoing challenge of what Christmas is really about. I received a preview copy ahead of the formal release. I am related to the writer and know some of the cast and crew so must admit to some potential bias. Frequently the "Christmas Wars" between the sacred and the secular can spoil and blur the simple message of peace on earth and good will toward mankind. In this presentation the writer and the actors do not present mere platitudes and predictable answers. Nancy Stafford is the voice of reason and grace - I found her straight forward wisdom about what really makes Christmas "Christmas" compelling as well as inspiring. The movie is set in Alaska capturing the beauty and providing the ideal context. The characters are believable. This one is worth buying and giving as gifts to all of those you know who want to hear the real message of Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas message!! November 15, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having read the reviews before purchasing this movie, I knew what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised to find it even better than expected!! Our whole family loved it! As Christians, we especially like the emphasis on Christ and His spirit of love and compassion, despite Mitch Bright's seemingly successful attempts to prevent the nativity display. This is a very timely message and one we should all take to heart. I hope more movies like this are made!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't quite make the 5 Star rating ~ December 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this show and it will remain in my "30 days of Christmas" line up for the following years. It did not get the 5 stars, only due to the fact the ending felt rushed and it was not played out as much as this great storyline could have been. Saying that, it gives the viewer an excellent concept of what really is Christmas about, and if the "powers that be" do remove signs, titles, nativities, etc... from "Christmas" does this really ruin it? The movie suggests these are just traditions, but no one can take the real meaning which is the gift of love that was given to us, at His birth and sharing it thru giving of ourselves and caring for "people" more than caring for the "traditions" that we once held dear. It is the true concept of Christmas, not played out by lights, statues and "things" but in fact loving the un-lovely the "one sheep" that has gone astray and reaching out in whatever way you can to show love and ....well, "Christmas" to them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of strawman arguments against atheists
Awful, simply awful. The atheist who returns to the town after 20 years, seems like an embittered and angry man, out on a personal vendetta against the heroic Christian mayor. Read more
