Angela’s Christmas is a funny, heart-warming and poignant story based on Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt’s only children’s book, about the power of family and the innocent desire of a child to ensure everyone is safe, warm and loved at Christmas time. Set in Ireland in the early 1900s, the film tells the story of six-year-old Angela, who – while attending mass on Christmas Eve – notices the statue of Baby Jesus lying in the manger. Worried that the underdressed statue will be cold in the cavernous church, Angela decides to “rescue” the statue and bring him home to warm him up. And from there the adventure unfolds!

The DVD release also features the Making Of documentary, which includes exclusive interviews with Ellen and Malachy McCourt, the film's director Damien O’Connor, and much more.

“It was my husband Frank’s dream to see this delicate, little Christmas story transformed into a classic Christmas tale,” said Ellen McCourt. “With persistence and care, Brown Bag Films and 9 Story have made that dream a reality. He would be thrilled with Angela’s Christmas as is the entire extended McCourt family!”
