Reviewed on 3/8/2008...
This is billed as a Christmas movie, but it is much more than that. This is truly a movie emphasizing true friendship between 2 boys of extremely different backgrounds and the love of a brother for his dying sister. I am so glad that I saw it. I give it a 5 star rating. It is set in the '50s.

Movie Reviews

Wonderful holiday feature, possibly headed to classic!
Melanie Winters | Vancouver, BC | 11/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"We bought ANGEL DOLL after reading about it in a piece for the St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis (the film has a connection to this facility). Our expectations were not high, but the film was quite a pleasant surprise. There are no big stars in the movie, but the performances are solid and believable. I've seen my share of similar plot-lines (i.e., poor kid or family overcomes hardships to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas or friendship or loyalty or whatever. But Angel Doll does not cross into hokeyville. It manages to remain true to its themes and entertaining to the viewer. For the price, it's a wonderful value for any video collection."

"I bought this movie and watched it with my family and it was most heart tugging movie, some might think its corny but, i thought it wasn't. Its a great family movie with a great storyline and plot."
One for everyone's Christmas collection

"Heartwarming story of a brief childhood friendship that resurfaces each year through an angel doll, the most valued of all the Christmas decorations in the narrator's household.

The narrator grows up to become a renown writer, but what ever happened to Whitey? Whitey was the less fortunate of the two. His homelife was unstable and he lost his beloved sister to polio.

Though the narrator never finds his friend Whitey, we are assured that Whitey must be doing well for himself. Angel dolls are the clue."
