If you missed the premiere of Christmas Dilemma on TV ONE December 6, fret not thyself because it re-airs on Wednesday, December 9th at 8/7c. Christmas Dilemma is a holiday film directed by Essence Atkins, in-fact, this is her directorial debut!!!!!
While 2020 has had its challenges, it’s definitely the year of the Woman. Congratulations to Essence Atkins and Brittany Hall who stars as Monica in the film.
CHRISTMAS DILEMMA follows a newlywed couple Jay (Britt) and Monica (Hall) as they struggle to decide which set of in-laws they should join for their first Christmas. After each pleads their case and even attempts a little trickery, they decide to bypass the guaranteed disappointment of picking one family over the other. Unbeknownst to them, the decision is made for them when their families show up at their home unexpectedly. Drama ensues as the in-laws clash, long-lost relatives decide to make an appearance, and Jay’s grandmother joins the holiday festivities accompanied by her caretaker who just happens to be Jay’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend.
I got the opportunity to watch the film. I’m going to warn you, there is an unexpected scene that truly made this film different from every other film of its kind. This picture truly embodies the holidays of all families; with its twists and turns. But the thing that holds us all together is love. After all, it’s about having FUN in the dysFUNction.
CHRISTMAS DILEMMA cast includes:
- BJ Britt as Jay
- Brittany Hall as Monica
- Carl Anthony Payne II as Eddie
- Christopher B. Duncan as Howard
We got the opportunity to interview Christopher B Duncan, the legend in living color or virtual color– darn you, Rona! Christopher has given us life on and off-screen and this film is no different. As a husband and father, he identifies with his character Howard and believes that those roles are the most important roles he has been given. Watch the video for more.
