A thought provoking film based around the Christmas period.
The Snow Report
The snow starts to fall and makes things Christmassy but also hard
While the big guy does not feature himself, his representatives do appear.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
Infrequently festive instead the back streets and suburbia of Chicago provide its own dark decor.
Will It Make Me Cry?
Dark at time this is far more emotional than your typical Christmas movie. This film may make you feel guilty.
While not particularly christmassy, the music is well written throughout. There is also some great saxophone playing. The use of O Holy Night in the cafe is very good and the salvation army briefly feature as well.
Hume Cronyn and Fred Savage are excellent throughout the movie. Badja Djola also features as well.
The saxophones solos and the fact that Trevor insists of running everywhere are highlights worth mentioning.
