I shared a short time ago how my family loves watching Christmas movies, as a way to get excited in in the holiday spirit. Well, we have been watching our fair share of classics and new to DVD releases, thanks to the family being sick these past few weeks. After caring for the girls all day and lounging on the couch with them, I find myself awake come bedtime. What to do for my time? Watch holiday movies, like "Lost Christmas," which arrives on DVD from Inception Media Group, LLC.
This movie is not one that would come to mind when I would be asked for a holiday movie, as it is not one that you would sit down with the whole family to watch. Instead, parents and those with older children, will find this release to be uplifting, as it deals with tragic events that ultimately lead to a holiday miracle.
Here is the trailer to give you a sense of what this movie is about, as well as a synopsis of this moving film...
"On Christmas Eve, ten-year-old Goose (Larry Mills) hides his fireman father's car keys to prevent him from going to work. Instead, his mother drives his dad but the delay has tragic results. A year later Goose, a lost soul, is troubled and searching to replace all he has lost when mysterious stranger, Anthony (Eddie Izzard) arrives. Anthony appears to have a special gift which enables him to find what each person has lost on Christmas' past. Witness a miracle of the holiday season as a boy finds magic in the least expected place."
I am a fan of Eddie Izzard, who starred in such hit movies as Oceans Thirteen and Valkyrie, as well as FX's hit show, The Riches, so it was nice to see him play Anthony in this holiday movie.
If you love holiday movies, and are looking for new ones to add to your growing collection, why not check out "Lost Christmas" when it arrives on DVD on November 11th. Like I said, it not what you would expect from those sappy heartwarming holiday made for television movies that you would sit down with the whole family to watch. Instead, this would make for a great date night movie, movie to watch with girlfriends as you wrap gifts, or if you find yourself like me and not able to sleep at night, this riveting movie will not disappoint. I can't wait to hear what you think of it once you watch "Lost Christmas," so be sure to head back here and leave a comment with your thoughts. :-)
