There are also delightful supporting characters. JoBeth Williams plays Nick's playfully dominating mother. She wants to see her son happy with the right girl and she will go to any lengths to achieve that goal.

Usually I am a big fan of any movie presented by the "Hallmark Hall of Fame." This series has always been about quality programming and it is usually aimed at the entire family. This year's Christmas entry, however, left me cold.
Coming home from school for the holidays, it is obvious that there is something in the air. Is it my family's excitement at having me home? The love from all our family togetherness? No! It's the beginning of Hallmark's endless Christmas-themed holiday movie season!
Hallmark Hall of Fame is consistently offering inspirational and dramatic movies that feed our minds and touch our souls. Make sure you don't miss a single one of their offerings -- especially A Smile As Big As the Moon.
Beyond the Blackboard is another movie that is too good to be true, if it weren't true. Kudos to the Hallmark Hall of Fame for finding Stacey Bess' story and for making it a thoroughly engaging and impressive film.
