I was beginning to doubt my initial largely positive reaction to "The Nativity Story", as many of my friends refuse to see it because Mary has pain in childbirth, and is portrayed as a typical, not Immaculate young woman. I understand their disappointment, (I wish Mel Gibson had done it) however, the movie has redeeming qualities, and should be seen on the big screen before it's out of the theatres.
