I Have Reviewed OVER 500 "Christmas Films and Specials". Please BEWARE Of films and specials with just one review! For instance When "It's a POSITIVE" chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. "If its Negative" then they may have a grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films.

Heartwarming Irish Christmas tale based on Frank McCourt story arrives on Netflix ENTERTAINMENT Heartwarming Irish Christmas tale based on Frank McCourt story arrives on Netflix (Image: Brown Bag Films) Gerard Donaghy BY: Gerard Donaghy December 01, 2018 Shares 46.2k Share This Article:

AN ANIMATED Christmas film based on a story by Irish author Frank McCourt has arrived on Netflix.

Angela's Christmas is a half-hour holiday special based on the Angela's Ashes author's only children's book.

Set in Limerick in 1914, the tale about the power of family was inspired by a story McCourt's mother told him as a child.

Director and co-writer Damien O'Connor told producers Brown Bag Films: "Initially, it was a little daunting to turn the book into the film, but we had Frank's widow Ellen McCourt on hand to guide us which was amazing, if we strayed too far from Frank's voice when writing the dialogue she would let us know."

The film sees Angela 'steal' the baby Jesus from a church crib to keep him warm and ensure everyone is safe and loved at Christmas time.

O'Connor previously directed episodes of children's hit Doc McStuffins, while co-writer Will Collins penned the Oscar-nominated Irish animated film Song of the Sea.

Angela's Christmas stars Oscar nominee Ruth Negga and is up for three gongs at December's European Animation Awards.

McCourt's brother Malachy, the Irish-American actor, writer and politician, provides the narration.

A sweet story for Christmas

Simple but beautiful, this heartwarming tale is great and doesn't last more than 30 min. Totally recommendable.
