ANGELA’S CHRISTMAS (Released in Los Angeles, California USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Angela’s Christmas—
cute short film with great animation—needs expounding and lengthening to deepen Angela’s general personality throughout the year and possibly throughout a lifetime with a tie-in to her original compassionate act. The original idea has potential for a classic Christmas story, but that potential needs to be realized and could easily become a live action film. The heart and the simple emotion present can easily fertilize into a very good movie that could earn 4 stars or higher under right treatment.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Film Poster Courtesy of Wikipedia

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s short, sweet, and easy to watch. There’s room for expansion on this general theme of a small child desiring to keep dolls warm and comfortable.
