The filmmaker Jeff is living a quiet life with his wife, Kelly, and their two-year-old son. That is all about to change when Jeff's younger and more outgoing sister, Jenny, comes to live with them. The first night he gets an emergency call about her being passed out from alcohol and drugs use. This is the start of an amusing and light-hearted comedy starring Joe Swanberg as both director and lead actor, coupled with Melanie Lynskey (TWO AND A HALF MEN) and Anna Kendrick (THE TWILIGHT SAGA).
Joe Swanberg (b. 1981, USA) Filmography: 24 EXPOSURES (2013), DRINKING BUDDIES (2013), MARRIAGE MATERIAL (2012). HAPPY CHRISTMAS is his sixteenth film.
