This is a drama about a father-son relationship set against the backdrop of Christmas in New Orleans during the 1920's. It's not your typical 'feel-good' Christmas movie - and that's why there are so many negative reviews here I believe. It's a drama which shows real people dealing with real problems of growing up (son), making one's OWN way in the world without using others (father), and growing old (father's romantic interest). While not Hepburn's best role, as an elderly matron mother - it is good, and I find Winkler and Kurtz fine as the 'wheeling-dealing' father, and 'over-the-hill' yet kind-hearted wealthy woman. I find it a satisfying slice of life film to watch each year.

"One Christmas" was a film I happened upon some years ago. I did not know that it had been a story or a play, etc. I viewed it because I was familiar with the talents of the late Kathrine Hepburn and the talented Henry Winkler.
The story is not typical Christmas fare, but it is more real than many of the idylic Christmas movies. It is a tribute to the truth that many people struggle 365 days a year--their imperfections not taking a holiday.
Anyone who enjoys the talents of Winkler/Hepburn will enjoy this film; it is not stellar, not is not neccesarily their best performance, but it is a nice piece of "reality Christmas", if you will.

I think this movie was heart wrenching just because I think the child wanted so badly to be with his mom and dad but unfortunately it just couldn't be that way. I can't give the end of the film away but I'll tell you it is very bitter sweet. A nice clean family movie, worth buying, worth watching.

This is a well done version of the Truman Capote story by the same name. As always, the actual story is better, but Henry Winkler comes aross well as a gigolo trying to be dad for Christmas. You can view it with your kids, or use in in school to follow the reading of the story.

Katherine Hepburn marvellous, as always, although sad to see such a wonderful actress with her obviously progressed Parkinson's Disease. Despite her golden years and P.D., she remains consistent in touching the viewer's heart and making her character's statements/feelings as clear as always. She, for me, is the highlight of the movie. The young actor who plays the boy in this movie is also entertaining, however, felt that Henry Winkler was disappointing in his role. Still, an OK sort of movie, but would not buy it again - except perhaps for Katherine Hepburn's scenes.

From a truly wonderful bittersweet story by Truman Capote (as has been said) comes an adequate adaptation with an all-star cast. Katharine Hepburm seems to be the central character and even if her acting may seem full of mannerisms to some, by now that is neither here nor there. Julie Harris and Henry Winkler rise above many past ill-choices, and the whole cast superbly gives life to what may come through as a Christmas cliché but is just that extra bit more that has us glued to the screen.
On my part, kudos to Katharine, Swoozie and Julie!

We love Christmas movies but this was probably our biggest disappointment thus far. Expectations were high with the quality of the stars (Hepburn, Winkler) and the writer, but the quality scenes were just too few and far between. I suspect that people who liked the movie loved the book where the characters were presumably better developed and more likeable. Not having read the book, I found that I just didn't like the people on the screen and by the time they finally get into the spirit of Christmas, I just didn't care! Take a pass on this one.
