Happy ChristmasSAN FRANCISCO PREMIERE!  SKYPE Q&A WITH FILMMAKER JOE SWANBERG FOLLOWING 7pm SHOW on 8/1!

Jenny just broke up with her boyfriend, so she thinks it would be a good time to crash her filmmaker brother Jeff’s Tiki bar basement for a couple of weeks to figure things out. Problem for Jeff is, when you’ve got a toddler and money is tight and your wife is struggling to balance motherhood and art, it might not be a great idea to have a perpetually wasted 27-year old around. Also – it’s Christmas in Chicago. Working again with DRINKING BUDDIES collaborators Anna Kendrick and cinematographer Ben Richardson (working in warm-hued Super 16mm), Swanberg’s latest is a can’t-miss cocktail of effervescent performances, cringe-inducing realities and small graces. Starring Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Lena Dunham & Jude Swanberg.  Dir: Joe Swanberg. 2014. Digital. 77 mins.

“What a pleasure it is to watch a film showing life as it is, not warped into a fantasy of superhuman power. You can feast on such realism in Richard Linklater’s seven-course masterpiece, “Boyhood,” or sample it in Joe Swanberg’s modest but savory amuse-bouche, HAPPY CHRISTMAS.”
