Christmas Oranges DVD Review...


We are so excited to tell you about the fantastic Christmas Oranges DVD!

In a town not so far away and a time not so long ago, baby Rose was left on the porch of Greenwoods Orphanage, where Mrs. Hartley (Nancy Stafford) and the children under her tender care become her family. But when tragedy strikes, Rose (Bailee Johnson) loses the only home she has ever known and she is abruptly shipped to Irongates—a place that seems as cold and cruel as her previous home was kind. The strict headmaster, Mr. Crampton (Edward Herrmann), immediately seems to dislike Rose—and makes sure she and the other children are punished for any minor infraction of his rules.

Rose soon makes friends with Emily, but in spite of her gently and forgiving nature, some of the children will take any chance they can to get her into trouble. When she learns that every Christmas Mr. Crampton's generous brother gives an orange to each child, Rose waits in eager anticipation. The way the other children describe the sweet and juicy fruit, Rose is sure it must be the most delicious treat in the world. However, on Christmas morning, Rose is devastated when she learns Mr. Crampton is punishing her again. But Christmas is a time of miracles. Share a slice of Christmas sweetened with friendship and love in this poignant Christmas story based on a classic holiday tale. 

 

Our Review...

This movie starts out with a baby that gets left at an orphanage. Mrs. Hartley who runs the orphanage named her Rose and treated her like her own daughter. It was sad to see everyone get sick from influenza and Mrs. Hartley dies. Then Rose gets sent to Irongates Orphanage which is totally different than what she was use too. Mr. Crampton is an angry bitter man because of something that happened in his past. It takes a young girl named Rose to help him realize he needs to forgive his daughter Grace. Christmas Oranges is a heartfelt movie that helps you realize how important it is to forgive people in order for you to be happy yourself.

This wonderful DVD would make a perfect Christmas gift!
