Christmas With You is a romcom starring Aimee Garcia and Freddie Prinze Jr. It is directed by Gabriela Tagliavini.
A young woman who has it all, health, wealth and success, and yet is still a bit lost. However, thanks to Christmas she will recover the true Yuletide spirit in the most traditional way. Does it sound familiar?
Angelina is a pop star who feels burned-out, and despite it all decides to grant a young fan’s wish in a small-town New York, where she not only finds the inspiration to revitalize her career but also a shot at true love.
New York is so generous in film, that includes the most used clichés, especially, when it comes to the Christmas theme. So if we add to that a music star who has lost the Christmas feel, we have the perfect premise for a season movie.
When it comes to Christmas movies (barring Bad Santa and the one with Bruce Willis), they tend to be formulaic, somewhat insipid, and then there are those that are good movies, have something to tell and are technically well produced (see Love Actually).
In the case of ‘Christmas with You’, we are in for a formulaic, and rather insipid feature viewing experience. It does not have an outstanding script, and seems to aspire to be just another Christmas movie that has no ambitions of becoming a memorable production. It has all the ingredients required: a slightly disenchanted protagonist, who still has just about enough energy and kindness to grant a Christmas wish, the season setting, snow, pine tress, reds, whites, and greens, charming counterpart, and music. The goodness in this character will not go unrewarded. That is Christmas impressed on mainstream film.
A sweet little production that we will soon forget.
