November 1st. To me, this is the day I dig through movies and music and pull out all my holiday themed family entertainment. It’s been hard not to already pull them out and begin my holiday tradition, but I have held off and waited — until now.
I am SO ready for the holidays.
I love the twinkling lights, the yummy food my family and I make, but more than that, the holidays mean family to me. Being together, watching movies, loving on one another. That is what the holidays do for me!
There is a new family film coming out today on VOD (video on demand) that I cannot wait to tell you about — All I Want is Christmas.
Ira J. Finkelstein is obsessed with Christmas. He’s seen every Christmas movie ever made and his dreams are filled with reindeer, sleigh rides and SNOW. The problem? Ira’s Jewish – and at 11 years old, Christmas is passing him by. When Ira’s hopes for a holiday vacation in Aspen are dashed, he hatches a plan to finally get the Christmas of his dreams. Flying unaccompanied to visit his grandparents in Florida, he swaps tickets with Mikey, another 11-year-old on his way to Christmastown, WA . Ira gets more than he bargained for when he experiences his first “White Christmas”.
This film is filled with well known actors and actresses that you might recognize!
- Max Finkelstein – David DeLuise (Wizards of Waverly Place, Jesse, Stargate)
- Sam Finkelstein – Elliott Gould (Contagion, Oceans 13, Mash)
- Libby Wilson – Cynthia Geary (Northern Exposure)
- Ira Finkelstein – Elijah Nelson (Trainmaster)
- Mikey Amato – Justin Howell
- Clare Wilson – Shaye Hodgins
My Thoughts on the movie:
I love good, clean, family-friendly movies, and this one fit the bill perfectly. It was light hearted, and I could totally relate to Ira because I LOVE Christmas as well. After seeing this movie, I totally want to visit Christmastown myself!
