5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Family Christmas Story September 7, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This has already become one of my favourite Christmas movies and I just bought it the other day! It's a wonderful family film and as usual Hallmark has put out an outstanding production. Anyone who loves touching Christmas movies with a romantic story line will find this one hard to pass by. The touching scenes are combined with great humour to create a very enjoyable movie. The acting is superb by all the cast. Patty Duke is the angel and is charming in her role. The movie is based on the novel by Marilyn Pappano.
Emilie Thompson, played by Carla Gugino, is an aunt who wants to keep custody of her niece and nephew. Their mother, her sister, is a drug addict and is in jail. The opening scene shows Emilie and the children going to see her in the hospital because she had a drug overdose. A Children's Aid worker meets them there and tells Emilie she will put them in foster care immediately, because Emilie does not have a way of supporting the children. Emilie leaves with the children and starts on a journey to try to keep them together. They wind up in Bethlehem, USA and I love the line in which Emilie says, "We can't be THAT lost!" With direction from the angel, they wind up staying in an abandoned house in the community and find themselves holding up a facade.
In an amusing turn of events, while trying to escape the law, Emilie falls in love with the town police officer, Nathan Blair. David Conrad is really good in this role, and portrays the perfect man who is VERY handsome, sensitive, good with children, etc. In fact if most women don't "fall in love" with him while watching this movie, I would be very much surprised.

The lies Emilie has told in order to keep the family together, catch up with her on Christmas Eve and create a true test to the love that has developed between her & the children and Nathan.

There are some good messages to learn from the story about the importance of family and the fact that Anything is Possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season For Miracles a video for ALL Seasons September 27, 2000
By Jim Jr
Format:VHS Tape
Season For Miracles was produced as a Hallmark holiday production last December. It proved to be a wonderful story that can be enjoyed at any time, not only at the holidays. As usual with any Hallmark offering, the production qualities are excellent. It is based on the book by Marilyn Pappano, but the video version far surpasses the book version. The changes in the film script make it a much more appealing story.
When social worker (Kathy Baker) decides to place two children in foster homes because their mother is in jail for drug abuse, their devoted aunt (Carla Gugino) flees with them in a delapidated car. They end up in a town named Bethleham at holiday time when the car breaks down. A mysterious lady (who shows up whenever a special need arrives) sends the trio to an unoccupied house. The next morning the townspeople mistake them for the home's missing heirs. What happens after this makes for a truly heart warming tale.
The cast is filled with excellent actresses - Kathy Baker, Laura Dern, Patty Duke Lynn Redgrave and Faith Prince. Not since "Steel Magnolias" have veteran actresses come together for an uplifting story like this. Lynn Redgrave is the judge who saves the day and it is worth getting the video for her performance alone. But each of the performers is outstanding. Carla Gugino may not be a big name right now, but she proves that great things can be expected in the future. Each of the supporting roles are similarily performed by top notch "character" people.
The version I have also contains a "making of" featurette with interviews by the director and 4 of the leading ladies. It is a fascinating behind the scenes look at this magical story.
I have watched it a number of times since the holidays and enjoyed it more each time. I only hope that it will soon be released in DVD as well as the tape.
