Jessica und das Rentier: Directed by John D. Hancock. With Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, Rutanya Alda, Abe Vigoda. A farm girl nurses a wounded reindeer she believes is one of Santa’s, hoping to bring it back to health in time for Christmas. Her holiday spirit inspires those around her, something her disheartened father is having trouble understanding.
“This is one of the best contemporary Christmas movies made. A very sincere and sweet movie, but one that wonu0026#39;t give you tooth decay. Rebecca Harrell gives one of the most believable and intelligent performances as a young girl who nurses an injured reindeer back to health and holds the belief that the reindeer is indeed Prancer. Sam Elliot gives a strong performance as the girlu0026#39;s apple farmer father who has fallen on hard times and is trying to raise his kids without a mother. The rural scenery of this film is beautiful of the farms and woodlands and gives the film a real feeling of Christmas. A very simple plot fuels the movie, but it grows surprisingly darker and deeper as the film progresses and will be tugging at your heart strings by itu0026#39;s conclusion. Highly recommended viewing for kids and adults and all believers of Santa Claus.”
