"Super-serve your niche."
Those were the magic words that reeled Ed Burns back to his Irish-American roots with his latest indie film, "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas." Wearing all three hats as writer, director and actor, Burns presents a holiday story of a divided dysfunctional family. In other words, a story all his viewers can relate to in some way, shape or form.
The story follows Gerry (Burns), who's caught in the middle of his family's drama when his dad (Ed Lauder) begs him to convince his siblings and mom to invite him to Christmas dinner. Unfortunately for his dad, Gerry's mom vowed years ago to never let him step foot into her house. Some of his siblings aren't too stoked about sharing the joys of the holiday with the father that walked out on them either.
