RKS Film: Looking for a New Christmas Classic? “See You Next Christmas”

I am sure you have a favourite Christmas classic. Is it National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation”? “Home Alone”? “A Christmas Carol”? “White Christmas”? “It’s a Wonderful Life”?

Looking for something new? Might you find it in “See You Next Christmas”?

Annie (Christine Weatherup) and Tom Clark (Vin Vescio) hold their annual Christmas party “Clarkmas” in the film over a seven-year period. Annie’s cousin Natalie (Elizabeth Guest) starts a relationship each year at Clarkmas with Logan (A J Meijer) but it never quite develops into a serious relationship until year seven of Clarkmas where it looks like the sporadic relationship is over until it is suprsingly deepened on New Year’s Eve. Yes romance can be slow to develop.

You might want to classify the film as a romantic comedy but it has more serious angles to it particularly how having children changes one’s life and the changing attendees at Clarkmas…lot’s of children!

Can I take a guess this will not be a Christmas classic? But as such classics go it may be 40 years before we find out. In the meantime a lighthearted look at the evolution of relationships and of the great Clarkmas!

The film will be released on various digital platforms on November 9th.
