Movie Reviews:

"A lovely, earnest exploration of faith and a rare holiday recognition that every religion demands more from us than cards and toys." --USA Today

"[Hallmark Hall of Fame’s] new production of Mitch Albom's book Have A Little Faith is one of their best productions ever...An engrossing story, true emotional impact, and some of the best performances seen on TV this year." --The Huffington Post

"From the street-wise spiritual insight of Covington, to Lewis’ timeless wisdom, to the touching eulogy Albom delivers at the end of the film, Have a Little Faith is often both inspiring and moving, sometimes in surprising ways."  --Beliefnet

Challenging. Engaging. Entertaining. Thought provoking. --Catholic.org
