It's almost that time of the year - which means we've officially entered Christmas movie season.
Netflix has picked up "Angela's Christmas", an animated short film based on a popular children’s story from Pulitzer Prize winning author Frank McCourt.
Oscar nominees Ruth Negga and Lucy O'Connell lend their voices to the animated movie, which was created by the award-winning folks at Brown Bag Films.
The family-friendly, sentimental movie follows Angela who receives the ultimate inspiration on how to create a safe, warm Christmas for everyone when visiting church with her family on Christmas Eve in the year 1910.
"Angela's Christmas" is McCourt's only children's book, inspired by a story his own mother Angela told him as a child. The late author received worldwide recognition for his harrowing memoir "Angela's Ashes".
McCourt's widow, Ellen, served as an Executive Producer on the project and his 87-year-old brother Malachy McCourt (the Irish-American actor, writer and politician) provided the narration.
