What a powerful movie! I sat in awe in the theatre, not knowing whether to laugh or cry. It was beautiful! When Jesus is born and Joseph holds up baby Jesus and laughs I felt such joy fill me!
The movie was wonderfully done, the acting, the music, the script. It was gorgeous. And it really made you feel as if you were there, feeling Mary's frustration as no one believed her story, feeling Joseph's pain as he saw Mary when she arrived back from her visit to Elizabeth. There's one part where they are on their way to Bethlehem and after Joseph has fallen asleep Mary sees his dirty, bloody feet, sore from walking endlessly on the rocky ground. What does she do? She wets a cloth and washes his feet. It was beautiful. I cried, I must admit. I left the movie in a daze, it was that amazing.
If you haven't seen it yet, please go see it. You will leave the theatre changed and you will see Christmas in a whole different light.
