The inspiring true story behind the beloved Christmas carol

I HEARD THE BELLS tells the inspiring true story behind the beloved Christmas carol and its author, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Known as America’s Poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow leads an idyllic life – until the day his world is shattered by tragedy. With a nation divided by Civil War and his family torn apart, Henry puts down his pen, silenced by grief. But it’s the sound of Christmas morning that reignites the poet’s lost voice as he discovers the resounding hope of rekindled faith.

reviews

Wholesome and heart-warming for the season. The acting and cinematography were outstanding. The story line connects with the real-life challenge of questioning faith in the midst of life's challenges. Well worth the time to see.

Dale Marlowe

My favorite Christmas song since I was young and sang it at church. This movie tells the background and why Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote this song. Most upbeat, inspirational movie I’ve seen!

Kaylene Redd

Absolutely loved this film! It was heart wrenching, yet beautiful to watch, Costumes were amazing, acting was top notch. I had never heard of this chapter in Longfellow's life.
