A Wonderful Movie to see before Thanksgiving

I just finished watching the movie An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving & it was WONDERFUL!!!!!
If you have not had a chance to see this made for television version of the short story written by Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888)check out this post & then hurry to find it. As you will remember, this well renowned author of Little Women has had much said for her popular book but, I had never heard of An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving which is a heart warming story of family, survival, & LOVE. The story is rich, the cast did a wonderful job, & the costuming was very rich & romantic. For a bit of a trailer to the movie go HERE & then go get a copy (I rented mine from Block Buster) & enjoy this before Thursday. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs~Charlene

Oh, thank-you for this review, Charlene! I've actually seen the dvd at the store, and it looked so appealing, but I've made a new goal (I've got too many dvd's!) not to buy anymore without knowing anything about it...but upon your glowing recommendation, I think I'll hurry up and get it! I love Louisa May Alcott--this will be fun!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Thanks to the head's up Charlene! I thought I read all of Lousia May Alcotts books, but I guess not. I will try to get a copy. Sounds upliftingand our family could use that in this season of economic hardship.
Hugs and Blessings, Gerri

Charlene,
One of my favorite things about the holidays are the movies! I'll check that one out. I love the Hallmark movies. They are so heartwarming. And of course AMC for the oldies. I mean, can you make it through the holidays without seeing It's a Wonderful Life?? Not me. My fav new holiday movie is Love Actually, it is AWESOME! Sooo cute. Thanks for the review. Think I'll head over to Blockbuster. Lisa
