Just in time for the holidays, Christmas Child is a return to those heartwarming Christmas movies that we grew up loving. William Moses plays journalist Jack Davenport and Megan Fellows portrays his wife Meg. The movie takes us through their marriage struggles during the holidays as Jack seeks to find his roots after the death of his father. Both actors come across as genuine and engaging. Steven Curtis Chapman is surprsingly good in his role as Pastor Curtis. Although shot in Oklahoma, a timely snow in Tulsa makes for a convincing portrayal of the Chicago scenes.

With the recent onslaught of zany Christmas comedies and off-the-wall perspectives on the holiday, Christmas Child provides a more traditional and yet entertaining Christmas story. Best of all, this a movie you can watch with the kids without having to hit the mute button or explain adult humor. A movie that all ages should enjoy.

An updating of Max Lucado's book "A Christmas Cross", this film is about a successful Chicago journalist, whose marriage is at a breaking point as he is about to celebrate both his 40th birthday and Christmas; he is sent away during the Holidays to Texas for a story, and there reflects on his life and its meaning.
There is a lot in this film about adopted children, and the parents who take them into their hearts.
The film has some nice music as well, and the Christmas show is laugh-out-loud hilarious, with children that will capture your heart.

William Moses is convincing as Jack Davenport, Megan Fellows plays his wife Meg, who feels shut out of his life, and singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman plays Pastor Curtis, who reaches out to Jack with warmth and Christian love; Vicky Taylor Smith (Naomi) and Muse Watson (Jimmy) are among the excellent supporting cast.
A small and unpretentious film that was shot mostly in Oklahoma in 3 weeks, its simplicity is one of its biggest charms; it's soapy but touching, and makes nice family fare. Total running time is 96 minutes.

The DVD "Extras" are: a lengthy "Behind the scenes" that has interviews with author Max Lucado, director William Ewing, Chapman, Moses, and others in the cast, "Shaohannah's Hope", which is named after Chapman's exquisite daughter, and is about adoption, and a music video with Chapman, "When Love takes You". There is also a companion book to this film available by Max Lucado.

I saw this video surfing through Amazon, and decided to buy it. I am a big fan of Christmas in general and especially the movies. I read other reviews about Jack being a jerk and this a dull movie. I thought completly otherwise. For someone who has ever lost a family member would know what this character is feeling. He is having a difficult time dealing with the passing of his adopted father. He seeks answers from his home town. He is a typical man that does not want to speak about his feelings with his wife and is why he kind of closes off to her. Both my two children are adopted and I often wonder if they will have the same feelings as Jack did. I knew he would eventually seek the comfort from his wife, but it was in his time to do so. The ending was very emotional for me when he finally finds some answers and I was very touched by the ending. I really enjoyed this movie and was glad I purchased it and would definately watch it again. The other characters in the movie are funny, especially the lady at the nearby Inn. Jack's character thought so too. And the town Sheriff irritated me for picking on Jack, but then again he was just a jealous man. ;-)) I would recommend this movie. For me I shedded a few tears in the end. ENJOY

Christmas is time to share faith, laughter, tears and belief. I was taught that gifts can not always be those unwrapped under the Christmas tree. In this movie life-changing events are viewed as they are "unwrapped" as the movie progresses. Sometimes life is not perfect and we need to search for the Truth. In this heart-warming movie,a favorite Christian singer and actors who I have enjoyed in previous television programs/videos make the true spirit of Christmas come alive. William R. Moses, Stephen Curtis Chapman and Megan Follows all star, with others, in a family film about love and redemption. I would recommend it for a Christmas Eve showing at homes and churches on Christmas Eve, a contemporary "It's A Wonderful Life".

This was a good movie. Not anything sectacular but if you set aside the low budget and the ocasional questionable acting it has a good story line and makes for a very entertainig Christmas movie. It is one of those movies you can sit down with the whole family and everyone enjoy. If you are a big movie buff this may not be one to add to your collection. however if you are looking for something that is entertaining, has a good storyline, decent acting and something you will leave with, I would reccomend this movie.

I love Megan Follows. I have followed her since Anne of Green Gables and Ann of Anne of Avolee. Although this movie was not about her, she was the same wired redhead as i remembered her to be, full of life and passion and willing to fight for what she wanted, and in this movie, it was her marriage. Her husband needed to find out who he was. He was adopted as a child and was haunted by not knowing who he was. He desire to know took him on a journey. In the end was it really worth it? I'll let you decide. It is a great family movie with some moving scenes, but by far family friendly and will be enjoyed by all.
