Watch Gift of the Magi (TV Movie 2010) - Alternative Versions.
The O'Henry well known and striking short story on which two hour movie
was based, is very short and precise. It's a masterpiece story which
needs to be short to be as sharp and surprising as it is. It was made
into a movie in the 50's, as one of many short tales, with less than a
half an hour duration. it is to be expected then, that a lot had to be
added to the plot to extend it to two hours.At times it feels like some
water has been added to the stew, and it is not as savory. Still,one
can certainly find some tasty morsels in it,especially the overall
acting quality and the sweet and friendly atmosphere of goodwill
surrounding the piece.
It's a working class town,and it's pretty bleak, not the upper class
glittery ambiance one often finds in many a Christmas film. It's a
credit to this "Gift" that it keeps the setting grim,like the story,
but warms up the story with the sweet feelings our couple at the center
have for each other, Della and Jim (Marla Sokoloff and Mark Webber).
Around them are loving families and friends, in struggling hard times;
but the folk in this town do take care of their loved ones, and the
film successfully transmits this feeling of community support.
It's a parable for our actual financially depressed clime. It seems to
pat us in the back saying love will carry us through(or at least make
the ride easier,just what the Magi(Epiphany's Three Kings) ordered.The
story turns on how Della and Jim botch up their Christmas gift
list.They vow not to exchange presents, then go ahead and secretly plot
otherwise. The conspiracy goes awry. Jim gets jealous when he suspects
Della of spending too much time away. She has a secret part time job,
with an older gentleman boss. Jim thinks Della's having secret
rendezvous with an older gentleman lover. Not much trust from Jim here?
Well, if Mr. Shakespeare had Othello mistrusting Desdemona, why not
this screenwriter having Jim distrust Della? Later on Jim and Della
will unwittingly screw up their gift plans,with the effect of producing
an ironic twist that will be the heart and soul of this story. We all
love surprises, and this story has one of the best!
Marla Sokoloff(Della) and Mark Webber(Jim)put in some really good
acting. They're both fit for bigger and better roles. Marla as Della is
sweetness and light,the girl next door who blossomed into a great
beauty;kind of a young Sally Field with a vamp inside.Mark Webber has a
boyish, intense look about him, promising in his soulful eyes a lot of
rich layers. His projection of the character's insecurity is perfect
for this part.
The casting is very good, including an interesting supporting cast.
Megan Riordan(Renee) and Tomas(Ian) Suilleabhain-Sullivan in Gaelic)are
lively and authentic as the main couple's supporting family.They have
an adorable kid(he's not even in the credits)who melts the screen as he
gives Jim a big hug at one of Jim's low moments.
All you need is love, is the appropriate, timely message this Gift of
the Magi delivers. It may not pack the surprise punch of the original
story, but it does leave you with a feel-good Christmas warmth.
