Originally titled, “A Meyers Christmas,” “Almost Christmas” tells the festive story of a beloved patriarch who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle. The film was written and directed by David E. Talbert and produced by Will Packer. It also stars Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher, Kimberly Elise, J.B. Smoove and Romany Malco. There are also special appearances by Grammy winning-singer Monica and legendary songstress and actress Gladys Knight.
