Christmas Movie Recommendations


Some Recommendations:


Beautiful Christmas imagery and a touching, amusing story make Fred Claus a magical, hilarious and romantic family film.

A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote is a delightful time-capsule about the human condition, starring Patty Duke, Piper Laurie and Jeffrey de Munn.

Music of the Heart is based upon the true story of a violin teacher in Harlem. Starring Meryl Streep, it is one of those New York movies that realistically portrays the plight of talented people living there, and ends with a stunning, triumphant scene. The extremely talented Meryl Streep learned to play violin for her part in Music of the Heart.
