The Nativity Story

We went to see The Nativity Story today. It was much better than I anticipated. It set the political background and the Roman occupation extremely well and bought home the shame that Mary's family must have felt. Herod was well played and his paranoia came over well. I'd certainly recommend seeing it. It seemed to be pretty faithful to the Gospels. Though I'm not sure that the magi would have arrived so soon after the shepherds.
