DVD Review - Paper Angels
About the Movie
An abused wife leaves her alcoholic husband and moves with her children to another town. There their lives become entwined with another family in trouble.
My Take on the Movie
Have you ever seen a Christmas tree display with paper symbols hanging. On each symbol is a name of a child with some items the child wants or needs for Christmas. So you take one, buy the items , return to the gifts to the center and probably not think another thing about it.
This movie will make you rethink your actions. It is a movie what will move you in many ways. You will encounter a mother who runs away with her children to escape her abusive husband. You see her try to build a new life for her and her children. You see the many challenges the family faces. You will see how the paper angel tree established by the Salvation Army enables a family to enjoy a blessed Christmas.
Thomas , the son , shows us all through his character that there is more to learn from a person than their outside appearance. He shows us hope,l perseverance, love, commitment, and unselfishness , but also disappointment, hurt, and anger.
Due to Thomas' personality, the people he meets along the way, he makes a difference in so many lives. Thomas had a vision to help, no money, but he was able to make a special Christmas for many children/families.
To me this was a great family movie to share, but with the older children in your family. I can see a wonderful discussion initiated by the movie which may prove to help those less fortunate in your own community.
I believe this movie is well worth your time to watch and share.
