For some, the thirty days between Thanksgiving and New Year's can be a harrowing time at best. From tacky decor to Aunt Edna's mystery meatloaf, is it any wonder people skip the eggs and head straight for the Captain Morgan? A story that chronicles ten characters and their journeys through one particular holiday season. Guaranteed not to find any sugar plums (or figgy pudding for that matter) in this lot. Written by
Mary Ann Elizabeth
Different, quirky, but really, really good. That's how I would sum it up. Very well written and directed. The acting is also surprisingly strong - we're going to see some of these actors make it big. Plus very unique and creative music that really fits. It's an ensemble movie with a few stories that weave together, but you never get lost. The editing keeps things moving and yet tied together somehow. You can tell it's not a big budget blockbuster, but I was never distracted by that. The acting moments are fantastic, ranging from poignant tears to funny sex to pensive introspection that really feels real. Don't want to give the story away - it's funny, meaningful, sheds light on ourselves, and has a lot of depth. See it for yourself.
