A strong-minded, ambitious political personality espouses the conservative, right-wing agenda. However, while she has this tough, conservative personality for the public, behind the scenes she's consumed by her foibles and flaws.
This was a refreshing holiday movie because it wasn't all clichéd and sappy. Its not even really all that Christmasy just a slice-of-life drama involving a Puerto Rican American family who happen to all get together at Christmas and then the siblings (amidst their own issues) discover that their parents are divorcing.
There's a great cast involved here (Alfred Molina is the dad and Elizabeth Peña the Mother) and several fun story lines as we get to know all the adult children.
I particularly enjoyed "Jesse" (Freddy Rodriguez) who has just returned home from serving overseas and John Leguizamo along with his executive "fishout of water" wife (Debra Messing). As old resentments are let go and bonds reaffirmed the family begins to heal. I think the hilarious reoccurring problems with the tree removal may have helped there. 12.23.13
