Every Monday in December we’re shining a spotlight on a gay-themed guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit! Keep checking in for more Holiday Highlights. This week’s selection is When Edith’s Bells Toll.
Edith (Ades Zabel) loves to grumble throughout the most festive time of year – Christmas. So, Edith’s best friends, Brigitte and Jutta (Biggy van Blond and Bob Schneider), manage to persuade her to spend a cozy South Berlin Christmas Eve together in this “drag-tastic” holiday comedy.
A roast goose from the gas station, a cheap sour red wine, a red cabbage in a most beautiful white color and an unidentifiable brown sauce… the dinner is a disaster! Edith tries to remain positive even after Jutta decides to replace her small Christmas tree with her big “artsy” white tree. And Biggy, the leopard-dressed blonde, gets a surprise visit from her mother and daughter and ends up being forced to have her daughter spend Christmas Eve with her.
Even though this holy night doesn’t seem to have a chance for being cozy and relaxed, the friends manage the chaotic circumstances and wind up celebrating a slightly different Christmas.
