The latest from Joe Swanberg, HAPPY CHRISTMAS, was filmed in Chicago's Lincoln Square and features the accomplished cast of Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Mark Webber and Lena Dunham.
Kendrick plays Jenny, an irresponsible 20-something who comes to Chicago to live with her older brother Jeff (Swanberg), a young filmmaker living a happy existence with his novelist wife Kelly (Lynskey) and their two-year-old son. Jenny’s arrival shakes up their quiet domesticity as she and her friend Carson (Dunham) instigate an evolution in Kelly’s life and career. Meanwhile, Jenny strikes up a rocky relationship with the family’s baby sitter-cum-pot dealer (Webber).
