Thanks to Cowgirl Up, I will be reviewing and giving away Angels Sing this week. The movie stars Harry Connick Jr., Connie Britton, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. It’s about a dad that isn’t too fond of Christmas because of something that happened when he was a kid. The film is based on the novel When Angels Sing by Turk Pipkin. Angels Sing is available now on DVD and Blu-ray.
In Angels Sing, the main character (Michael Walker) is encouraged by all his neighbors to decorate his house for Christmas. It’s a tradition in their neighborhood. But Michael just can’t get into the Christmas spirit. That’s not actually a problem at our house. I turned on my outdoor Christmas lights the day after Thanksgiving. And we have multiple Christmas trees at our house. They are fake trees, but they still count!
Speaking of Christmas decorations, we received a bunch of items to put up in house while watching Angels Sing. As you can see in the photos on this page, my kids had a fun time helping my wife and I put them up.
Angels Sing Synopsis
Harry Connick, Jr. stars as Michael Walker, who, as a child, wished every day was Christmas. That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can’t muster any joy for Christmas, despite encouragement from his playful wife (Connie Britton) and well intentioned parents (Kris Kristofferson and Fionnula Flanagan). But when his young son (Chandler Canterbury) faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick (Willie Nelson) gives Michael a gift that instills in him the courage to find the Christmas joy that he lost.
