A Christmas Story

Comedy, Family 1h 34m 1983

AroView: This comedic gem is little known in this neck of the woods, yet is roundly celebrated in America as a modern Yuletide classic.

Set in 1940s Indiana (delightfully recreated), nine-year-old Ralphie dreams of his ideal Christmas gift - a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. But when his request is met with disapproval by his grumpy dad and doting mum, he mounts a full-scale Santa-begging campaign! Thereafter the calamitous hi-jinks snowball to hilarious effect. Narrated by co-screenwriter Jean Shepherd, on whose novel the story is based.

“Arguably the greatest Christmas movie ever made, and certainly the coolest!” ~ AroVideo
