Natale a tutti i costi

In “A Family Christmas,” De Sica and Finocchiaro play Carlo and Anna, middle-aged parents of a close-knit family living in the Italian provinces. Their grown kids move to the big city. Once away, they limit their family ties to a few brief phone calls, refusing to attend funerals, birthdays, or even spend Christmas in their former home. Then, when the angry parents lie and pretend they’ve inherited millions of Euros from an old aunt, they magically show up.
