Christmas Lilies of the Field Reviews:

I just complete watching this movie on our local UPN station. They stuck it on the schedule in the middle of a weeknight - 'filler', of course. We don't have (or want) cable or satellite TV, so I'm everytime satisfied to search something a tiny various - even if it is aired at 2:00 a.m.What really type of hooked me about this film in the first several mins was not Billy Dee Williams, but the actress who plays "Mother Maria." She's one of those girls who have a seemingly effortless moral authority and strength. She also has mesmerizing green(?) eyes. (Ostensibly, Williams is supposed to be the main draw here - but I've everytime found him to be an actor of limited appeal. Very handsome, of course - but not a nice talent.) She was fully believable in the role of a head nun who is committed to providing a home for a bunch of abandoned and neglected kids.The southwest zone is a great change from the stereotypical snowy Christmas-movie locations.I also liked the multi-ethnic cast, although the hero of the black social worker was a gratuitous, obvious (and highly unlikely, given the setting) romantic interest for Billy Dee.The movie's low-key, matter-of-fact atmosphere makes for a realistic portrayal of daily struggles. No supernatural miracles here - just a bunch of folks trying to better the lives of unwanted kids.Anyway, I really enjoyed this quiet tiny gem. Especially at this time of the year, when I've seen the same vacation movies over and over again. Like "A Christmas Story", I'll add this to my roster of under-rated and 'forgotten' vacation movies.If you run across "Christmas Lillies of the Field" on some lower-rung channel in the middle of the night (like I did) - give it a chance. It's a charming, heartwarming tiny movie that really grows on you.


While I enjoyed this film, I feel that there were a couple of issues with it.The first is that it was shot in color. Having seen the original Lilies of the Field in black & white, there was a certain "feeling" about seeing it in b/w, and somehow seeing the sequel in color just didn't do it for me.The second is with the role of Homer Smith. While I had no trouble with Billy Dee Williams testing the role, I have a large trouble with him mimicking the voice inflections, hand motions, and movments of Sidney Poitier. I felt that it was too contrived. Sidney Poitier was the excellent actor in the original Lillies of the Field back in '63, he has certain mannerisms and vocal inflections that create him who he is.


I grew up watching this film each year at Christmas, without fail, since my mother found it at a local independent video bar, and purchased it for three dollars, and so I am probably more than a tiny biased. However, I think this is a really sincere and heartwarming movie. The color is a tiny extraneous at times, especially in the face of the original Sidney Poitier version, but I don't think it takes away much in the grand scheme of things. The storyline is simple, like the original, and the actors enjoy it out just as simply (although "Question Lady" does have a tiny bit of indulging going on sometimes). Again, the Southwest U.S. setting makes for a visually pretty film, and the multiracial cast enhances it. This film might be seen as trite and insipid, but I think it's a classic that has never been totally appreciated for its value, sentimental and otherwise.
