Sorry, but she is not acting. She is trying to act like she's acting. She drifts out of character constantly, barely ever in character, editor's nightmare. I see shots cut as long as they can be before she seems like she can't wait for the shot to be over. Either she knows she doesn't know what she's doing, or she just doesn't know. Oh, well. Hundreds more of these Christmas movies. Maybe the next one will be better. Other actors weren't very good either. I'm sorry if this was a training film or something, but these kids just aren't actors yet.
