A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story

Our next Rialto Recommends is 1983's classic Christmas tale A CHRISTMAS STORY. Though not initially considered a hit the film has grown from a cult following to become a Christmas Classic and has been on the National Film Registry since 2012. Based on the humorous writings of author Jean Shepherd, this beloved holiday movie follows the wintry exploits of youngster Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), who spends most of his time dodging a bully (Zack Ward) and dreaming of his ideal Christmas gift, a "Red Ryder air rifle." Frequently at odds with his cranky dad (Darren McGavin) but comforted by his doting mother (Melinda Dillon), Ralphie struggles to make it to Christmas Day with his glasses and his hopes intact. Roger Ebert raved "It is pitch-perfect, telling the story through the enthusiastic and single-minded vision of its hero Ralphie, and finding in young Peter Billingsley a sly combination of innocence and calculation." While the Boston Globe saw the future in 1983 and said "In short, A CHRISTMAS STORY isn't just about Christmas; it's about childhood and it recaptures a time and place with love and wonder. It seems an instant classic, a film that will give pleasure to people not only this Christmas, but for many Christmases to come." In addition to airing for 24 hours on TBS and TNT A CHRISTMAS STORY is streaming on TBS, TNT, DirectTV, Sling, and Spectrum as well as available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and many others.
