Kasi Lemmons directs this unconventional festive musical drama starring Forest Whitaker, Jennifer Hudson, Jacob Latimore and Mary J. Blige. A loose adaptation of Langston Hughes' retelling of the Nativity story, the film follows Baltimore teen Langston (Latimore) when he travels to New York City to spend the Christmas holidays with his grandparents Reverend Cornell (Whitaker) and Aretha Cobbs (Angela Bassett). Though Langston is initially unimpressed by his relatives and pines for his absent mother (Hudson), as the holiday progresses his eyes are opened to another way of life and fresh possibilities.
