Christmas in a Box (Noël en boîte)

Thursday, December 20, 2018 – 4pm, 7pm
@uptownbarrie​, 55 Dunlop St W

TICKETS: bit.ly/2QmtZoP

Written and Directed by: Jocelyn Forgues
Starring: Janick Hébert, Zachary Amzallag, Michèle Vinet, Stéphane Paquette, Vincent Poirier

Comedy, Not rated, 90 minutes, English and French with English subtitles (Canada)

Sophie, a U.S. TV star, finds out shortly before Christmas that she is the subject of compromising photos. Under the pretext of granting the photographer an exclusive interview in exchange for the pictures, the young woman invites him to spend Christmas at her aunt’s in northern Ontario. Will Sophie successfully come to terms with her painful past?

Christmas in a Box is a “feel-good” romantic comedy that takes place during the holiday season and whose main theme is the unconditional love of family. This was filmed in Mattawa, Ontario just east of North Bay.
