Christmas has arrived and the festive season has begun with Stan Original Film Jones Family Christmas.
Not your usual flick about the holidays, this one is all about the dysfunctionality of family — something we can all relate to on a deep, deep level!
Inspired by true events and the life of Tegan Higginbotham (writer) and directed by Stef Smith (It’s Fine, I’m Fine) it’s a multi-generational comedy told through the lens of an Australian family whose holiday gathering is cut short by bushfires.
Here’s everything we know!
What is Stan’s Jones Family Christmas about?
Eccentric grandmother Heather Jones (Heather Mitchell) has finally managed to get her family under her roof for Christmas. But all is not merry and bright in this rural home.
From heartbreak and depression to meddling mothers and forced frivolity – every member of Heather’s extended clan is fighting an internal battle. And outside things aren’t much better.
Before Heather has a chance to interrogate her kids, the family receives a fire evacuation order. Suddenly, the Joneses are on the run.
As the mercury rises and danger closes in, Heather and her family must band together as they rediscover what matters most – each other.
