“Greetings, salutations, and a seasonal welcome to all you movie aficionados. Here are my considerations and recommendation for Christmas Unfiltered.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStory: 1.50/2 – Direction and Pace: 2.75/4 – Performances: 1.50/2 – Enjoyment: 1.50/2u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTotal 7.25/10u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo be honest, I love this movie. Iu0026#39;ve always loved the notion of being unfiltered, but knowing what goes through my head, Iu0026#39;m glad Iu0026#39;m not. But in this story of wishes come true, you know everything will work itself out. And though the concept is brilliantly utilised, the true power of this movie comes from the realistic and credible characters the writer Billie Bates creates. These people are so real you could reach out and touch them. The family isnu0026#39;t dysfunctional, but itu0026#39;s well on its way – Iu0026#39;d say, theyu0026#39;re three-quarters the way there: A Mother so obsessed with Vlogging she doesnu0026#39;t heed anyone around her; a teenager getting ready for college, but who may come back with more than one STD – if her diary can be believed; A little sister whou0026#39;s close to claiming the crown inscribed Problem Child; A middle daughter who is the butt of all her younger sisters joyful wickedness, and much ignored by her parents; A dad who hides in his own private space – the garage – to dodge any emotional flack that may be flying. And, each of them has their own reasons and feelings, which become clear as we progress and truths are told and learnt.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBetter yet is how the directors handle the narrative when bringing it to the screen. They have a meticulous eye for composition and lighting, which helps to add to the characteru0026#39;s emotions, and the mood of the scenes, which arenu0026#39;t all heart-warming – and is ideal for this type of story. Even when we reach the finale, thereu0026#39;s still a smidgen of unsureness mixed with the heart-warming atmosphere, adding to the realism and potency of the picture. But the one thing I adored was the animated mini-me of Becky. Though it doesnu0026#39;t add much to the tale, it adds lightness to the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLuckily for the viewer, the cast is excellent in their roles and expertly brings their characters to life. They all deliver their best portrayal, which made the picture a delight to watch. I especially liked Gavin Bedall as Matt, Beckyu0026#39;s maybe-boyfriend. Matt is another excellently written character, and Bedall nails his characteru0026#39;s cool humour.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI would highly recommend Christmas Unfiltered for everyone. Itu0026#39;s an enjoyable, funny, and thought-provoking, though an easy-view film. I believe Iu0026#39;ll be revisiting Beckyu0026#39;s family whenever it airs again. I may watch it again before C5 pull it from their schedule and streaming service.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePlease check out my HO! HO! HO! Christmas Belles list to see where I ranked the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTake Care, Stay Well, And Best Wishes For A Merry Christmas.”
