New York Times
Rating: B -- Swanberg's naturalistic, improvised style lets the conflict come about organically, repeatedly putting the characters in situations to which they could react with clichés but instead go with something more empathetic and nuanced. Full Review
Rating: B- -- I suppose it's because his father in this movie is played by his father, but I've never seen a better performance -- or whatever you want to call it -- from a two-year-old. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
Loosely crafted story works and has an easy natural flow ... shooting on 16mm, Ben Richardson's cinematography is textured with a 70's cinematic feel. Full Review
Behind The Lens
A personal, hilarious and well-made work of art piped straight to me on my couch; if that's the form that the rescue of the modern film comedy is going to take, I refuse to complain. Full Review
3 stars out of 4 -- HAPPY CHRISTMAS expertly captures the rhythms of a young couple’s life and how it changes enormously when a baby arrives.
Rating: 3/5 -- If you need a Christmas film with more heart and less schmaltz, this could be the right choice. Full Review
Two disparate women establish a friendship that provides them with precisely the support they both need in this independent drama from writer/director Joe Swanberg. Christmas is coming, and after breaking up with her boyfriend, short-sighted Jenny needs a place to stay. Fortunately, her brother Jeff and his wife Kelly have a swanky basement that is currently unoccupied. Shortly after arriving at their Chicago home and settling in, Jenny finds her penchant for alcohol and pot impeding her attempts to get her life straightened out. Meanwhile, despite her frustrations at watching her sister-in-law flounder in a downward spiral, Kelly, too, begins to feel as if she has run out of options. Later, as the Christmas lights flicker to life and the snow begins to fall, Jenny and Kelly begin looking to each other for the strength to face the future. Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Mark Webber, and Lena Dunham co-star.
