One Magic Christmas (1985)
|An angel must show a mother the true meaning of christmas. It's not just presents and materialistic things, but the people she cares about.|
Editor's NoteIn this heartwarming Christmas film, a young mother, Ginny Grainger (Mary Steenburgen), rediscovers the joy and beauty of Christmas thanks to the unshakeable faith of her six-year-old daughter (Elisabeth Harnois) and Gideon (Harry Dean Stanton), her very own guardian angel. With Gideon's help, Ginny learns that the season is about her family and other people she loves, rather than the presents and materialism heaped on by a consumerist society.
