Description

Storyline

Two separate stories mesh – in the first, a young music teacher, Maggie Andrews, begins dying of a heart condition and her son Nathan tries to get a pair of Christmas shoes for her before she dies. In the second, lawyer Robert Layton and his wife Kate are slowly drifting apart and the matter comes to a head during Christmas when Kate takes over for Maggie for the school choir and declines a job in Robert’s firm. When Robert’s mother passes away, he begins to reconsider things and his and Nathan’s paths cross on Christmas Eve as Nathan tries to raise the money for the shoes and Robert tries to get a present for his daughter.

Missing Warning Label

By the title and movie description, I thought I was in for two hours of a sweet heartwarming Christmas story. I was close. While this film is a heartwarming one, it’s also quite tragic. The only thing missing was a warning about how sad and depressing some parts in the movie are. Kimberly Williams gives a stellar performance, and Max Morrow and Amber Marshall are perfect for the roles of the cute kids, much needed for the story. Although Rob Lowe was disappointing for the first time, in my opinion, I think this movie is a great one for families to see together. I think that there are many tough issues addressed in “The Christmas Shoes,” giving parents an easy opening to talk to their kids about some of the harder things in life. This movie is realistic. Normally, it’s easy to laugh at so-called “sad” movies, because in the end, everyone’s happy, all ends well, and they do live happily ever after. Movie characters! But this film has a real-life feel to it. It’s sweet, bitterly sad, heartwarming, and family-oriented. Definitely see this the next time it’s on TV!

A story about a boy who wanted to do something special for his mother before Christmas.

 
This was a tear-jerker, unexpected for a Christmas movie. I was impressed by the boy’s (actor Max Morrow) acting. I’ve seen a few TV movies in the past, but they were mostly mediocre. It was surprisingly good for a TV movie. This is definitely worth watching if it shows again on TV.
