This is the best Christmas story -- I can not count how many times I have seen this move. The acting is superb and the scenery is magnificant. I would recommend this Christmas movie for the whole family -- it is a great way to introduce the younger people to understand what old age (future death) is about and that we should respect and welcome the older members of the family.

My family has been looking for this Christmas film, for years. Now that it'savailable, I purchased 4 copies to be presented as gifts this year. Thankyou for helping me in a very timely fashion. Regards, Bruce Ghent.

This is a wonderful Christmas story that I saw on T.V. Possibly fifteen years ago and I have been trying to find a DVD or VHS of it ever since. I was so pleased to find that Amazon now had it. I shall enjoy it many times. I do intend to get "The Gathering #2". thank you Amazon.

It's with mixed feelings that I review this movie. The storyline was well done, keeping us in the present lives of 12 family members while showing flashbacks of the past. The acting was quite good. It was the story itself that I found difficult to watch. I suppose it's to be expected that most families have relationships that could be improved upon. However, the extent that Adam Thornton went to in order to preserve his pride stretched my ability to believe this could be true to life. It seemed rather extreme to me. He threw away a good marriage and most of the relationships that he had with his adult children because of his stubbornness. He was unwilling to look at himself, apologize and admit that he needed to change.

There was a good conclusion, but the wasted years still brought a sense of sadness, both to the family members and to us, the viewers of this movie. The good that can possibly come out of this story is that we who have witnessed the breakdown in relationships can more readily decide for ourselves --- are pride and stubbornness worth the loss of relationship with the people we love the most? There is some mild language. No sex or violence.

I had never seen this movie but it looked interesting online. It is a great movie. Very good actors (Ed Asner and Maureen Stapleton) I am now tempted to buy the sequel but it may not be as good without Asner.

The Gathering, Starring Ed Asner, And Maureen Stapleton was orginally a MADE FOR TV movie.
It is the best ever Christmas "Tear Jerk" movie. On Par with It's a Wonderful Life and Better than the
original Miracle on 34Th street.

My father watched this on TV as a child, I remember him being so excited one Christmas when I was young and he found it once again being replayed on TV. I was happy to find it here and purchased each of us a copy. It is a great story about a family reconnecting at Christmas, a great feel good Christmas movie.

I am delighted with the service at Amazon. Have bought movies in the past, although it had been a while. This product arrived in about half the time I expected, in good condition (was a used film) and at a great price.
