Having never seen this movie I was very excited when I found out I was going to be able to review it. Of course, I am one of those that loves the up and coming new releases, usually action or horror. but love being able to sit down and enjoy a classic as well. I'm so glad that I was given this opportunity. 

The Inn of the Sixth Happiness held me captivated from the very beginning. Based on the life of Gladys Aylward whose story was told in the book "The Small Woman". I loved Ingrid Bergman in Anastasia and I have to say, she certainly didn't disappoint in this movie either. She was absolutely brilliant playing the role of Gladys as a missionary in China. 

It's a very powerful and moving story as she leads the children across the mountains to be transported to safety. I will be honest, I had to grab the tissues a few times. No matter the obstacles she faced, she overcame and persevered. 

The Inn of the Sixth Happiness has a very well written script, wonderful casting and beautiful, breathtaking scenery. The fact that it is based on a true story makes it even more powerful and inspiring. With a mixture of laughter, action, drama, and love all neatly rolled together for a great family experience. 

This just goes to show that one person can make a difference!!!
