With home viewing gradually becoming most viewers preferred way to see movies, digital downloads are understandably increasing in popularity. Two great upcoming options for digital download this month are indie comedy Happy Christmas and Bad Grandpa .5, an unrated and extended version of last year’s Bad Grandpa, with over 40 minutes of extra footage, outtakes and interviews.
Happy Christmas boast an incredibly impressive cast, including Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect), Melanie Lynskey (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and Lena Dunham (HBO’s Girls). The film premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and recently had a successful run at the recent Sydney Film Festival.
Check out the synopsis and trailer for Happy Christmas here:
When Jenny (Anna Kendrick), a hard-partying 20-something, moves in with her film director brother (Joe Swanberg), his wife Kelly (Melanie Lynskey), a budding novelist, and their two-year-old son after a break up, the family’s idyllic life is shaken up. Jenny begins a rocky relationship with a baby sitter-cum-pot dealer (Mark Webber) and she and a friend Carson (Lena Dunham) team up to try and help Kelly find balance in her life. As usual, the results are in the eye of the beholder. A new comedy from the director of Drinking Buddies.
