A Very Brady Christmas (1988)

The Brady Bunch is back for the holidays in this 1988 CBS TV movie. Mike (Robert Reed) and Carol Brady (Florence Henderson) can’t wait to spend the Christmas holiday with their six adult children and family friend, Alice, but a confluence of issues may prevent the holiday get-together from happening at all — every Brady child seems to have a problem going on. When Mike is trapped in a collapsed building, however, they’ll all have to set aside their issues to help make a Christmas miracle happen.

Last Christmas (2019)

Kate (Emilia Clarke) is down on her luck, working a dead-end job as a Christmas elf and hoping her dreams of becoming a professional singer will come true. It’s a bind that any artist is wont to find themselves in from time to time. For Kate, things literally start looking up when she meets Tom (Henry Golding), a pleasant stranger that Kate sees staring up into the sky. Over the course of the film, the two become close, which after a string of depressive episodes, helps Kate to put her own life back together. Directed by Paul Feig, from a script by British actress Emma Thompson and her husband, Bryony Kimmings, Last Christmas gets its name from the popular Wham! song that we’re betting you’ve heard at least a hundred times.

The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017)

Directed by Bharat Nalluri from a script by Susan Coyne, The Man Who Invented Christmas is based on the 2008 book of the same name by Les Standiford. Delving into biopic territory, the film follows Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens), who is down on his luck and reeling from financial hardship as he struggles to find inspiration to begin writing A Christmas Carol, an aspiration that people in his life detest. Trusting his intuition and the advice of his children’s Irish nursemaid Tara (Anna Murphy), Dickens forges ahead with his novella. As notable characters begin to take form, their fictional guises are transplanted to the real world. Chief amongst these realizations is the all-too-iconic Ebenezer Scrooge, brilliantly portrayed by actor Christopher Plummer. The Man Who Invented Christmas is a new and brilliant lens by which to view Dickens’ classic holiday tale, and it’s a great Christmas film to add to your family’s yearly rotation.
