I went to see the movie The Nativity yesterday. I took my 8 year old daughter with me. I don’t think I would take a child much younger. Not because the story isn’t amazing, but because the movie moves along pretty slowly.

Overall, I liked the film but some of the scenes were a bit cheesy.

What I really appreciated were the cultural insights into the time when Jesus was born. The movie does a great job of showing that God entered into this world in the absolute lowliest of circumstances.

I recommend you go see it. It will help your focus this holiday season. Grade: B-.
