A Christmas Tale (Un Conte de Noël)

The Vuillard family is no stranger to physical/mental illness, loss and familial disagreements. However, when the matriarch becomes in need of a transplant, the whole family is forced to come together, emotional baggage and all, just in time for Christmas. Featured as the Best Film of 2008 on many critics’ top ten lists, A Christmas Tale features incredible performances from Catherine Deneuve, Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Devos.  This film will be presented by film critic Farihah Zaman of The Huffington Post and Reverse Shot magazine.
