Before Mary Poppins returns to theaters this holiday season, another mysterious woman is gracing the big screen in Change in the Air.

The movie plops us in suburban somewhere at the arrival of a new resident, an enchanting and secretive young woman named Wren (Golden Globe winner Rachel Brosnahan). The curious among the neighbors begin to notice some strange goings-on and begin to investigate. What they find brings them face-to-face with some deeply buried secrets.

A sweet film that doesn't entirely take flight, Change in the Air feels a tad underwhelming. The dramatic moments don't dig deep enough. Some of the characters and their storylines make an emotional appeal, but they fall short of a hard tug at those heartstrings.

The good this indie film does is that it's a great reminder of the importance of community. You never know what your neighbor might be going through. So, show kindness and grace whenever possible.

Rated PG for "some thematic elements and brief language", Change in the Air is appropriate for most ages. The film has a vague religious, universal tone to it. There are references to Jesus (through a song, "Eye on the Sparrow", sung by Macy Gray), but also a shaman.

Unfortunately, Change in the Air's full potential feels untapped. The fact it is also available via streaming services (Amazon Prime, Google Play, YouTube) does make it easier to commit to a viewing.
