Tribeca Film Acquires Edward Burns' 'The Fitzgerald Family Christmas' For Holiday Multi-Platform Release

Tribeca Film has acquired North American rights to Toronto-bound “The Fitzgerald Family Christmas,” a domestic drama written, directed and starring Edward Burns. The distributor also released “Newlyweds” on multiple platforms. On this Irish-American working class family comedy, Burns brings back old pals Connie Britton and Michael McGlone, who co-starred in Burns’ 1995 debut “The Brothers McMullen.”

Burns tells the tale of adult siblings who deal with the wish of their estranged father (Ed Lauter) to return home for Christmas for the first time since he ditched his family two decades ago. Noah Emmerich, Kerry Bishé and Caitlin FitzGerald also star.

“The Fitzgerald Family Christmas” will premiere in Toronto on September 9. Tribeca plans to release the film in the late November holiday season.
