Nothing brings the spirit of the season into our hearts quite like a great holiday movie. "Christmas films" come in many shapes and sizes and exist across many genres. Some, like It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story, are perennials, while others, such as Die Hard, have only gradually become yuletide favorites. But they all have one thing in common: they use themes evoked by the holiday period-- nostalgia, joy, togetherness, dysfunction, commercialism, or cynicism-- as a force in their storytelling. This book showcases the very best among this uniquely spirited strain of cinema.--provided by publisher."@en ;
