Angels Sing - #AngelsSing DVD Review

I received compensation in exchange for this post.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Christmas movies usually get me in the holiday spirit.  I like watching some of my old favorites, like Elf and A Christmas Story.  I also like to view newer Christmas movies.  Usually the plots are generally the same, but there's something about seeing cheer, joy, hope, and renewed spirit that makes me feel good.

I recently gathered some friends together to watch the Christmas film, Angels Sing.  Released in 2013, Angels Sing is a holiday film worth watching.

The film revolves around Michael Walker, a family man who refuses to celebrate Christmas.  He had a tragic incident in the past that caused him to become bitter over Christmas.  Now, in his adult life, he moves into a home and is given conditions about keeping up with standards.  One of those standards just happens to be putting up Christmas decor.  At his new residence, Michael finds out the meaning of community when people come together to help him with a new tragedy.  Michael also learns that sometimes the greatest gift you can give is the gift of memories.  

Just like most Christmas movies, Angels Sing has a happy ending.  This is a film the entire family can watch.  Be sure to keep a stock of Kleenex on hand.  There are some very heartwrenching and heartwarming scenes.  My favorite part of the entire movie was the music.  And I loved that Willie Nelson was a key character.  His rendition of 'Amazing Grace' was moving.

If you haven't seen Angels Sing and you are looking for a great Christmas film to watch this holiday season, I definitely recommend this movie.

Film Synopsis:

As a child Michael wished every day was Christmas - until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can't muster any joy for Christmas, despite encouragement from his wife and parents. But when his son faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick gives him the courage to find the Christmas joy that he lost.
