“We truly believe this is the perfect film to kick start the Christmas season. At its core, the film is a story of friendship and support, two themes that are particularly prevalent during the festive season. And this year, we could all use a heartwarming story to get us in the festive spirit.” Nicola Pearcey, President UK & Europe, Lionsgate
