Zooey (Toni Collette) and Alec (Maurice Cole) are a young couple who long to have a child. But they have many problems and their marriage seems to be coming apart. Unable to conceive, they set their heart on adopting a child, or at least taking in a foster child and they visit an orphanage. Just before Christmas, a young boy arrives at their door claiming to be their foster child. He leads them to seek inside themselves to try to heal the problems in their marriage. But as happy as they are, sometimes things are just too good to be true.

This is a very touching movie. Toni Collette is very good at giving Zooey the pain that she feels and brings it poignantly to the screen. Maurice Cole, as Eli, the 7 year old foster child is an amazing actor. He talks and acts like a grown up and if very helpful in many ways in bringing the couple together and helping them work out their problems. His acting is well worth watching the movie for in itself. It’s very heartwarming and touching and there’s bound to be a few tears due to the way this movie reaches in and touches your soul. It would be a good movie for anytime, but the Christmas season is a great backdrop for this story as it ads strength to many other supernatural holiday films. This is an excellent film, and one that ought to be added to your list of choices for the holidays.
