Miracles are closer than you think
Rose (Sarandon) is a woman who cares more about other people than she does about herself and spends most of her
time looking after her mother who has no recollection of who she is.
Nina and Mike have a stormy relationship as he is consumed
with jealousy and when he finds her in their flat with her gay male friend turns violent causing her to leave.
Alan Arkin plays Artie who is consumed with guilt over
his past which leads him to be rescued by Mike. These four characters lives intertwine as each are faced with dilemmas which
by helping each other they can overcome.
With an all star line up and a fantastic storyline Noel is a christmas hit. Susan Sarandon shines as always as
she portrays turmoil of being alone at christmas. Cruz, Walker, Arkin and WIlliams are all fantastic as they all search for
a resolution to their problems. This story is certain to make you laugh and cry at this touching tale of four people uniting
to find christmas miracles in each other.
9.5/10 - Absolutely fantastic and guaranteed to get even the scroogiest of people into the christmas spirit.
A recommended watch for all, with a star studded ensemble and emotional plot its perfect.
