'Fitzgerald Family Christmas' Trailer: Ed Burns Officiates Family Squabbling (Video)
"All I want to be is with my family at Christmas, is that so unreasonable?"
That's all that Big Jim Fitzgerald (Ed Lauter) apparently wants for a gift this year. But the family in The Fitzgerald Family Christmas isn't so sure if they want to see their estranged dad.
The trailer for the holiday dramedy -- written, directed, and starring Ed Burns -- debuted on Monday. And it appears in step with how The Brothers McMullen director had previously described the film.
"There's nothing about this movie that is edgy or hip or cool," Burns told The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto International Film Festival. "It is really heartfelt, it's emotional, it's honest."
Family Christmas also features Connie Britton and Michael McGlone and arrives in theaters on December 7.
