One wild and woolly Christmas Eve in the sleepy Irish village of Pottersglen, expecting parents Joe and Maria O’Hanlon (Bronagh Waugh, The Fall) are forced to take an emergency detour on the way to the hospital. Born in a barn under the brightest star, Noelle (Erin Galway Kendrick) grows up with an innate magical ability to see the goodness in people and help them to be their very best.
With its once booming snow-globe manufacturing and pottery business struggling to hold its place in the market, the humble village faces economic uncertainty. Financed by shrewd property developer Shepherd (Pierce Brosnan, Mamma Mia!), local upstart Pat McKerrod (Rob James-Collier, Downton Abbey) sets out to make his mark and exploit Pottersglen to his advantage.
It is up to young Noelle and her keen team of soccer playing friends to investigate McKerrod’s shady dealings and turn the situation for the community around before it is too late.
Featuring fun cameos from the likes of Liam Neeson (Love Actually), Kylie Minogue (Moulin Rouge!), Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games) and Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), A Christmas Star is a bright beacon of spirited family entertainment.
3 Day Christmas
In the playful tradition of Home Alone and Yours, Mine and Ours comes a fun-filled family comedy of errors and rediscovery featuring and directed by Corbin Bernsen (Psych, L.A LAW).
Martin Taylor (George Newbern, Father of The Bride) is suffering the frustrations of a mid-life crisis. He has lost touch with his family - unsure of his teenage daughter's friends, struggling to communicate with his techno wizard son via an electronic sign outside his bedroom door and concerned that his youngest daughter watches too much faith TV. It is time for the family to reconnect and it is up to Martin to bring them all together for one life-changing experiment that will either reunite them all or send them running for cover. AKA 3 Day Test.
Outback Queensland, the early 1950s. The Thompson family - struggling to keep their outback farm from foreclosure - place their financial hopes on their horse, Prince, a favourite to win the New Year's Cup. Two horse rustlers named Bill and Sly (John Ewart: For the Term of His Natural Life & All Saint's John Howard) steal Prince and make their way to a nearby mountain range to escape. However the thieves have underestimated the resourceful Thompson kids John (Mark Spain, the child star of Young Doctors , A Country Practice & Fatty Finn) and Helen (a 15-year-old Nicole Kidman in her film debut). Although left alone by their drover father and stranded by the thieves, the children saddle up their own horses and chase after the crooks with the aid of station-worker Manalpuy and their English cousin Michael. Filmed on location on the Lamington Plateau, Queensland, and featuring music and a special appearance by popular Australian folk band The Bushwackers, Bush Christmas is an Australian family Christmas classic brought to DVD for the first time for a new generation!
