DVD REVIEW: Christmas Jars


Based on the New York Times best- selling novel by Jason F. Wright
Hope is an aspiring reporter who has had her fair share of tragedy in life.
Abandoned at birth, she is grieving the recent death of her adopted mother
when her apartment is burglarized of all her possessions. While reporting
the burglary to the police, Hope discovers a jar full of money labeled
"Christmas Jar." Shocked and grateful for this act of kindness, Hope
discovers that people all over her hometown of Columbus, Ohio have
been receiving Christmas jars for years during times of need. The jars
are always anonymous and always contain different amounts.
In this heartwarming Christmas classic, Hope goes undercover to discover
the secret behind the Christmas jars, putting into motion a series of events
that will change her life, and her community, forever.


This is the best new Christmas movie I've seen this year. As a baby, the heroine, Hope is abandoned in a booth at a diner, where she is found and adopted by a waitress and grows up to be an aspiring reporter. After her mother dies of cancer, and her apartment is burglarized, she discovers someone has left her a "Christmas Jar" full of money outside her door. She begins to research the Christmas Jars and discovers dozen of recipients all over her hometown. With a little more digging, she finds out who was responsible for starting the tradition and decides to write a story about them. That leads her into a complicated situation, and she comes close to losing both her career and her relationship. In the end, things work out even better than you might suspect. I enjoyed this film, both for the storyline and for the acting in it. All of the characters are very well scripted and extremely believable. I look forward to making this movie a part of our family Christmas tradition.
