Personal redemption isn’t an original concept when it comes to Christmas movies. It’s a Wonderful Life—the king of Christmas films—and the original A Christmas Carol were the forerunners for movies with such a message. However, Bridgestone Media’s new Saint Street is a Christmas tale about second chances that can serve as a solid complement to your Christmas turkey and pumpkin pie.
The film stars Mark Webb as Percy, a man so caught up in the rat race of life that he begins to neglect what should matter to him most: his family. (Again, not a new concept, but the movie progresses well. A car accident tragically takes Percy’s family and leaves him paralyzed. Adding insult to injury, he then loses his job and house, forcing him to re-evaluate his life—now as a homeless person—and lack of faith in God. Like Ebenezer Scrooge before him, Percy finally sees the light and changes his ways, with a little danger and intrigue along the way. Jasen Wade co-stars as a mysterious stranger that appears from time to time in Percy’s life to help get him on the straight and narrow path.
Like It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol, the movie ends on a familiar feel-good note. Then again, films about faith, hope and redemption usually do.
