My Favorite Chritmas Gift

has to be a DVD of the movie Millions.

It is the sweet story of a young boy who is dealing with the death of his mother by living in the world of his imagination which is populated by the saints and martyrs that he loves to read about. He and his father and brother move to a new house and he comes into posession of a bag of money which he thinks has been sent to him by God. He tells his brother, and the rest of the movie is a wonderful tale of how the money complicates their lives.

The acting is really great, the story is charming and the entire experience was just a lot of fun.

But you don't have to take my word for it, here is Sr Rose's review as well.

thanks for the tip...always looking for great and relatively unknown movies...have you ever seen "The Princess Bride"?... one of our favorites, and possessing of perhaps the greatest sword fight scene in the history of film.

Watched it with my niece and nephews this Christmas!

A nice film with a positive (though perphaps some might think slightly irreverent) spin on the communion of saints!

Good drama . . . Good message . . .

Happy New Year!
