Overture Films & the New York International Latino Film Festival invite you to a special advance screening of Alfredo De Villa’s new star-studded film, “Nothing Like the Holidays”.

Thursday, November 20
7:30 p.m.
Regal Union Square Stadium 14
(850 Broadway, New York, NY 10003)

On December 12, Overture Films will proudly present NOTHING LIKE THE HOLIDAYS, an endearing Holiday comedy for the entire family. If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that family time isn’t always a walk in the park. In Nothing Like the Holidays, two of today’s most talented actors, John Leguizamo (The Happening, The Take) and Freddy Rodriguez (“Six Feet Under,” Bobby), join Debra Messing (“Will & Grace,” “The Starter Wife”), Jay Hernandez (Quarantine, Friday Night Lights), Alfred Molina (The Da Vinci Code, Spider-Man 2), and director Alfredo de Villa (the award-winning Washington Heights) to tell the humorous and heartwarming story of one unforgettable family holiday.

It’s Christmastime and the far-flung members of the Rodriguez family are converging at their parents’ home in Chicago to celebrate the season and rejoice in their youngest brother’s safe return from combat overseas. For Jesse (Freddy Rodriguez), coming home has rekindled feelings for an old flame, although she can’t seem to forgive him for leaving. His older sister Roxanna, a struggling actress, has been chasing her Hollywood dreams for years with little to show for it. And much to the dismay of their mother Anna (Elizabeth Peña), eldest brother Mauricio (John Leguizamo) brings home a high-powered executive wife (Debra Messing) who would rather raise capital than a child.

RSVP is mandatory by emailing Jenifer Golden at ( ) by no later than Tuesday, November 18. Please include your full name and contact info in the email, as well as whether you’ll be attending with a guest (guest’s name not required). This invitation does not guarantee seating as admission will be handled on a first come, first served basis. The theater is overbooked to ensure capacity. All attendees are encouraged to arrive early (30 minutes prior).
