Family got you down this holiday season? Commiserate with the poor, put-upon nephews in these incisive portraits of yuletide dysfunction. In his dryly funny short BAD NIGHT FOR THE BLUES, British director Chris Shepherd delves into his own family’s history to recreate a wild December night out with his daft, wine-swilling Tory aunt. Then, a teenage boy gets a jarring Christmastime awakening in Claude Jutra’s bittersweet Quebecois classic MON ONCLE ANTOINE, widely cited as the greatest Canadian film ever made.
