Angela's Christmas: The word "adorable" was made for this film
Set in Ireland in the 1910s, Angela's Christmas is a funny, heart-warming and poignant story about the power of family and the innocent desire of a child to ensure everyone is safe, warm and loved at Christmas time.
The half hour CG film is based on Irish author Frank McCourt’s only children’s book, inspired by a story his mother Angela told him as a child. McCourt won the Pulitzer Prize for his best-selling memoir, 'Angela’s Ashes'.
The film stars Oscar nominated Irish actress Ruth Negga in the role of Angela’s mother, and 11-year-old Kilkenny actress Lucy O’Connell as Angela.
It's tale of simple morality and goodwill is perfect for the season.
Watch it and you will laugh, cry and be filled with warmth.
