Factory 25 has released the trailer for Christmas, Again, the romantic indie drama which played the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. I wasn’t able to catch this movie while I was in Park City, but the film got some favorable reviews and is headed for MoMA in New York City on December 3rd and Los Angeles on Friday, December 11th 2015 before hitting iTunes and select digital and cable platforms.
