“The Christmas Shoes” and “The Christmas Blessing” W/ Adam Felber

Play

The saddest Christmas song ever was made into the saddest Christmas movie ever. “The Christmas Shoes” stars Rob Lowe, Dorian Harewood, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, John Dunsworth (“The Trailer Park Boys”) and a fabulous pair of shoes. Listen to  me and NPR’s Adam Felber (“Wait… Wait Don’t Tell Me”) via Skype from his backyard to talk about the this three hanky tearjerker and it’s sequel, “The Christmas Blessing.”

Watch the Christmas Shoes Here.

From IMDB.com: Two separate stories mesh – in the first, a young music teacher, Maggie Andrews, begins dying of a heart condition and her son Nathan tries to get a pair of Christmas shoes for her before she dies. In the second, lawyer Robert Layton and his wife Kate are slowly drifting apart and the matter comes to a head during Christmas when Kate takes over for Maggie for the school choir and declines a job in Robert’s firm. When Robert’s mother passes away, he begins to reconsider things and his and Nathan’s paths cross on Christmas Eve as Nathan tries to raise the money for the shoes and Robert tries to get a present for his daughter.
