    Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'Angels Sing'
    Print this page

    Every year, as far back as I remember, my family had a tradition: every Thanksgiving night, after the feast, we would watch the classic Tim Allen film The Santa Clause to end Thanksgiving and kick off the Christmas season. I got married when I was twenty, and we held up the tradition, switching, however, from The Santa Clause to Love, Actually. Well, that whole deal didn't work out, and this year I found myself wondering what to do about it. New chapter in my life, new film needed. I didn't want to go with anything obvious, like A Christmas Story or Home Alone (great as those are). Luckily, I have some wise friends who informed me that I should retire with them to their home and watch A Muppet Christmas Carol, which I haven't seen since I was very small. It was a great idea (but I fell asleep, actually). 'Tis the season for Christmas movies, and lucky for you, there's a brand new one playing right now at Village 8 Theaters.

    It's called Angels Sing, and it stars Harry Connick Jr. as Michael, a grinch of a man who loved Christmas as a boy until a tragic accident occurred. Since then, he wants nothing to do with the holiday (as evidenced in the trailer by rejecting the special seasonal drinks at the coffee shop in exchange for a boring ol' cup of plain black coffee [my personal beverage of choice, by the way]). But then his family hits a snag in their lives and they are offered the deal of a lifetime: a massive discount on an incredibly luxurious house sold to them by “Nick” (Willie Nelson), who has one condition: uphold the neighborhood standards. Turns out they're all about them some Christmas decoratin', and it's up to Michael to get his head straight.

    Angels Sing is scheduled to play at Village 8 until this Thursday, December 12. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
