Happy Christmas

When: Sat., Aug. 16, 7 p.m. 2014

That Anna Kendrick is so hot right now. Seriously, she would totally give Hansel from Zoolander a run for his money in the hot department. But thankfully for us, she’s cooling it down a little in Happy Christmas — or at least the weather in the film is. Kendrick stars in the indie flick as Jenny, a girl who moves in with her brother and sister-in-law after a breakup. And based on the trailer, it looks like Jenny reacts like many people who have just split with their significant other do— she goes a bit crazy, drinks too much, and hooks up too. It’s not all laughs though. There’s family drama between Jenny and her brother and his family, plus the usual quarter-life crisis. But in the hands of director Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies) you at least know it’ll be real, so real in fact that his own daughter stars in it as well — and has been called “perhaps the finest baby actor of all time” by the Washington Post. Cute babies, drunk antics, and Anna Kendrick all for $5? That really can’t be beat.
