Casting such a newcomer to play the male lead is an unusual move; however, Isaac was more than equal to the task, easily delivering the most compelling acting job of the movie.

I suppose the relative failure of the movie is responsible, but it would have been nice to find out a little more about this feature.

Beautifully designed, with naturalistic, believable performances, The Nativity Story is a marvelously straightforward, confident rendition of Joseph and Mary's time before the birth of Jesus

This visually-vivid, if emotionally-flat version of the prophetic Biblical tale chronicles the unconsummated marriage of Mary and Joseph and the host of woes visited upon the couple on the way to the miraculous virgin birth.
