We finally got a chance to see The Nativity Story this week. What an excellent movie! If you haven’t seen it yet, see it before it leaves theaters. I especially loved how they portrayed the relationship between Joseph and Mary, how she grew from not knowing him, to loving and appreciating him as her husband. It seems this movie hasn’t done well at the box office, which I couldn’t understand. Why isn’t the church supporting this family- friendly, Christ- honoring movie the way it did Passion?
We saw trailers for two other movies coming up which we definitely want to see. One is Amazing Grace, the story of William Wilberforce, who worked tirelessly to end slavery in Britain after coming to Christ. The same company which did Narnia is doing this movie. It opens in theaters on February 23. The next is Miss Potter, the story of Beatrix Potter and the creation of the Peter Rabbit stories. It stars Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor, and opens in theaters today!
