Penelope Cruz and Paul Walker are beyond believable as the PERFECT joining of two very different worlds.
The Alan Arkin-Paul Walker plot line is at once painful and lovely in the spirit of the season.
The Robin Williams-Susan Sarandon plot line is devastatingly heart-rendering --- and --- at the same time beautiful to watch unfold.
Susan Sarandon 'where is love" sequences are a great time to raid the fridge.
All in all --- a true Christmas Classic --- definitely NOT to be missed.
The story centers around the lives of five people on Christmas Eve. Relationships, love, and loss are thematic throughout. There are some notable actors in this cast; including both the late Paul Walker and Robin Williams. Williams' part is especially endearing, and Susan Sarandon is notably superb.
I urge you to give this one a chance next Christmas; a cup of hot cocoa and a cozy blanket is a must while viewing.
