A Very Mary Christmas is the story of pregnant young Mary, who's had all the trappings of an upscale life, but it's only when she finds herself in a small New Mexico town, in a down-trodden trailer park, that she learns the real meaning of love, sacrifice and family. Dan Gordon (screenwriter of Wyatt Earp and The Hurricane) marks his directorial debut with this effervescent dramedy.
This is the kind of film that you will want to take your family to. A movie where grandparents want to take grandchildren, when parents want to take the kids and when families want to share a motion picture experience, which neither insults them, nor offends them, and which champions the values they and their families hold dear.
The cast in A Very Mary Christmas is prestigiously solid and includes Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman; Academy Award nominee Elliot Gould; Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Lanie Kazan; Emmy nominated, Golden Globe winner and German Bambi award winner (German Oscar) Linda Gray; three time Golden Globe award winner and four time People’s Choice award winner Cybil Shepard; comedian Fred Willard, instantly recognizable from the indie feature hits “Best in Show,” “Mighty Wind,” and “For Your Consideration;” Olesya Rulin co-star of all three “High School Musical” movies; Gene Simmons whose Kiss fans alone make up a nearly rabid demographic; and Della Reese, star of arguably the most popular television show in history amongst Christian church going audiences.
