Trailer for Joe Swanberg's HAPPY CHRISTMAS!


Hey guys! Horrorella here...

A trailer has been released for the new indie-comedy, HAPPY CHRISTIMAS. This is the new film from writer/director Joe Swanberg, and is the follow-up to last year's phenomenal DRINKING BUDDIES.

When Jenny (Anna Kendrick), a hard partying 20-something, moves in with Kelly (Melanie Lynskey), a budding novelist, her film director husband (Joe Swanberg) and their two-year-old son after a break up, the family’s idyllic life is shaken. Jenny begins a rocky relationship with their baby sitter-cum-pot dealer (Mark Webber), and she and a friend, Carson (Lena Dunham), bring Kelly to the realization that an evolution in her life, career and relationship is necessary for her happiness. A new comedy from the director of DRINKING BUDDIES.

Swanberg has a way of depicting and capturing the subtleties of human interaction and relationships that really make his films come alive in a unique way. And the struggling nature of Anna Kendrick's character, combined with the family dynamic at play here is certainly something that many audience members will be able to relate to. 

HAPPY CHRISTMAS opens on VOD on June 26th, and in theaters July 25th.
