Holiday Highlights: When Edith’s Bells Toll

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.

A fantastic comedic ensemble cast from stage, screen and television come together in a black and white indie comedy about friendship, the holidays… and religious pluralism. An Atheist, a Catholic and a Jew walk into a bar… What starts as a punchline blooms into Happy Holidays, a comedy about friendship, family and faith.

 

Three childhood friends unexpectedly reunite in their New England hometown the week before Christmas. Now in their mid-thirties, it’s the first time Patrick, Alden and Kirby (Paul Hungerford, John B. Crye and Thomas Rhoads) have been in the same zip code since their high school graduation. Each of them is at a different crossroads in his life and facing difficult hurdles. They try to pick up where they left off, a simpler time – before obligations, politics, agendas – but has life taken them too far to make that possible?
