If you’ve had your fill of the usual festive fare, sit back, switch on the fairy lights and enjoy CUP OF CHEER, a cheeky Christmas cracker to titillate at tinsel time.
When a big city journalist returns to her small hometown for Christmas in search of a holiday scoop, she literally runs into a down-on-his-luck hot-chocolate shop owner. It’s not long before they begin a picture-perfect, Christmas-movie romance, exactly like all the ones you’ve seen before…or is it? This laugh-out-loud romp from director Jake Horowitz lampoons every Christmas movie you’ve ever watched and arrives just in time for the festive season on 7 December 2020 from (Yet) Another Distribution Company.
Mary (Storm Steenson – The Olympus Project, Forbidden: Dying for Love) is a successful journalist who heads back to her charming hometown of Snowy Heights to write an article about the town’s world-famous Christmas cheer. When she runs into the sullen but endearing Chris (Alexander Oliver – Freelancer, From the Thunder),the owner of Cup of Cheer, Mary learns that his charming business is going to be shut down on Christmas Eve…and it’s her ex-boyfriend that’s responsible. Using her big city smarts and her festive spirit, Mary unites the town in an effort to save Cup of Cheer and have the Christmas they’ve always wanted.
