The triumph of Jonathan Tomey,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Christmas Miracle Of Jonathan Toomey [DVD] (DVD)
I love the book this film derives from and wanted to see if for once a film would stay true to the story - it did and what followed was a most delightful experience, filling in lots of loose ends inevitably left by the book but remaining ever true to its original. I think this story - at heart about coping with loss, but don't let that put you off! - just shows how good a film can be that takes the original seriously. I could even recognise some of the pages of the picture book in the film, and the characters even look like their book-antecedents. A fantastic family film. Set in Edwardian times in America and 1st world war, the story of how three people overcome their individual loss to find love and friendship again. A story for I guess 9/10 year olds up to the whole family.
