"In a town not so far away and a time not so long ago, baby Rose was left at Greenwoods Orphanage, where Mrs. Hartley (Nancy Stafford) and the children under her care become the young child's family. But when tragedy strikes Rose (Bailee Johnson) loses the only home she has ever known and is abruptly shipped to Irongates -- a place that seems as cold and cruel as her previous home was kind. The strict headmaster, Mr. Crampton (Edward Herrmann), immediately seems to dislike Rose -- and makes sure all children are punished for any infractions of his rules. When she learns that every Christmas Mr. Crampton's generous brother gives an orange to each child, Rose waits in eager anticipation. She's sure it must be the most delicious treat in the world. However, on Christmas morning, Rose is devastated when she learns Mr. Crampton is punishing her again. But Christmas is a time of miracles. Share a slice of Christmas sweetened with friendship in this poignant Christmas story based on a classic holiday tale."
What do you do when you have two sick children, who are up off and on all night with head colds? Watch holiday movies, of course! :-) The past few nights have been rough as the girls picked up yet another cold going around. While Savannah's nose is running like a faucet, Arabella is dealing with congestion, fever and just being plain irritable from not feeling well. So, last night after rocking them to bed, I was looking for a way to unwind, and decided to watch "Christmas Oranges" from Bridgestone Multimedia Group. Based on the beloved, classic holiday tale, which I was not familiar with, this compelling story once watched will move to the top of your family's must see annual Christmas movies library.
Here is a short movie trailer to give you sense of what this heartwarming holiday movie is all about.
Looks like a great movie, huh? Well, it is! Even though the girls woke up off and on while I was trying to watch this movie, it was a great way to relax and remember what is good in life, and to cherish family. This movie about friendship and love will definitely pull at your heartstrings. Just make sure you have a box of tissues by your side, as you will need them. Let Christmas Oranges warm your heart and get your excited about the holiday season. This movie is truly a delight, and I can't wait to share with family and friends.
