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.
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.
