Anchor Bay Sets Fall Release for ‘Almost Christmas’

Giamatti, Rudd star as tree salesman

Anchor Bay Films has acquired all North American rights to Phil Morrison’s “Almost Christmas,” starring Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd, for a fall release.

Production companies are Anchor Bay Films, Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and GreeneStreet Films. Producers are Elizabeth Giamatti, Dan Carey, Sidney Kimmel and John Penotti.

Story centers on two Canadians and former partners in crime who travel to New York City and set up a Christmas tree stand in Brooklyn. Sally Hawkins and Amy Landecker co-star.

Hanway Films is handling international sales.

Ronnie Scheib wrote in her Variety film review, “As the two embark on a month-long trip to New York City to sell Christmas trees, this engaging if somewhat underwhelming tale of unlikely redemption builds a funny-sad web of intersecting interactions around its strong central perfs.”
