| This was a great movie and I've looked for it to play every Christmas
I'd like to know why it does not air each Christmas or even at some other time of the year - It was beautiful - I'd like to see it play more often. This was one of Keisha's best performances during a time when she was a young actress. This role suited her and she was able to play it so very well and brought the maturity needed even in a young actress. The performance was brilliant in that she never flawed in who she was and yet she got across the message that the show was suppose to have for anyone at any age. The setting was perfect. The other actors where just the right folks for each role. I don't believe that any other actor would have been able to play this role with the sort of innocence and cause for life than Keisha showed in her emotions and smallness of person. If she had not been in this role the movie would not have been the hit that it was. It really must be shown more!
