The Christmas Bunny

Synopsis: The Christmas Bunny is the story of a Michigan family, facing tough economic times, who take in a withdrawn foster child, Julia (Sophie Bolen). Convinced she's unlovable, Julia dreams of becoming "real," like the Velveteen Rabbit in her treasured storybook video. When a real-life rabbit is injured by her foster brother in an accident, Julia meets the Bunny Lady, a local recluse who cares for people's cast-away pets, and both their lives are changed by the encounter.

Dad told me you might be a little weird.

At first.

You got hot chocoiate.

You got TV.

You want some graham crackers?

Alright, well, I'm out of here.

Dib's on the TV when that's over.

She has three dollars

and some change in her pocket.

We like to send them out

with a little spendin money.

I'd go sparingiy with that video,

she'd watch it all day if you give her the chance.

Ms. Williams, one more question...

if she...

when she does start talking...

what should she call us?

Personally, I recommend Mister and Mrs.

It teaches respect.

After all,

she's only going to be here a few months.

Whatever Julia's comfortable with, I guess.

No, Mrs. Cooper,

whatever you're comfortable with.

- You're the parents, remember?

- Of course.


Hey, Mom, can I play some video games?

Yeah, sure, as soon as

Julia's done watching her video.

She is done. But she won't move.


...your sweaters are all

in the bottom drawer with your jeans.

And I even saved the plastic bags

that your clothes came in. Okay?

Oh, dear.

Maybe you wanted to put things

away yourself.

Did you want to do that?


I want you to know,

that's it's okay if you don't want to talk.

It must be hard moving into a new house

and having a new family.

But you are part of our family,

as long as you're here.

Is that alright?

Come on.

Just think,

it's only one more day until Christmas.

And tomorrow

we'll go to Uncle Chip's new house,

and you'll get to meet Johnny,

and Rebecca, who's just about your age.

And they're really nice.

Good night, sweetheart.

Just give us a chance, okay?

So, what do you think?

Well, there's something here

with Johnson & Bower.

They're doing controi paneis

for soiar eiectric now.

I think I should call them.

I mean about Julia.
