| Great little film, good use of Capaldi
I would classify this as a young adult version of the nativity story, focusing on the journey of Mary and Joseph from a happy, innocent young engaged couple, through the confusion and misery of Mary's weird unplanned pregnancy, to their stunned discovery that they are in fact the parents of a divine child. It's stylish and smart, with an ever so slightly clever contemporary feel and a well-made Hollywood-style high stakes five-act script. Being a nonbeliever who watched it strictly for Capaldi, I experienced it as a sort of really good "Doctor Who" Christmas episode with Capaldi's Doctor undercover in Bethlehem as Balthazar of the Babylonian School of Astronomy. I have to marvel at the dignity with which he mounts a kneeling camel, maintaining his balance as it rises up underneath him, and then shouts, "To Jerusalem!"
