Coopers’ Christmas

A hilarious comedy set in 1985 suburbia, when a dysfunctional family’s Christmas disintegrates into madness once an estranged uncle shows up for the holiday. Told primarily through the eyes of Teddy, the youngest Cooper son, through the family’s Christmas present: a second hand VHS camcorder. This all-seeing eye shows a family coming apart in the grand tradition of storytellers like Judd Apatow, family comedies like King Lear (but funnier) and films like The Squired and the Whale (on steroids).
