Christmas is the young star of Chad Hartigan’s latest film, the tale of a teenager and his father (Craig Robinson) adjusting to life in Germany. Between Christmas, Hartigan (2013’s “This is Martin Bonner”), Robinson and co-star Carla Juri (almost unrecognizable from her “Wetlands” role a few years ago), the cast and crew have all been notable, recent breakouts.
For the youngster’s part, you can see why in the film clip below of Morris and Inka (Juri). He doesn’t say much, but Christmas already has the quiet confidence of a screen vet. “This is Martin Bonner” was able to take a quiet, confident protagonist and build one of the better films of the year around him. Looks like Hartigan might have done the same again here.
