The Holly and the Ivy
In an isolated Norfolk vicarage on Christmas Eve 1947, the Reverend Martin Gregory is joined by a motley assortment of family members for a seasonal gathering to remember. As the snow begins to drift outside, the vicar welcomes a son on leave from the Army, an errant daughter passing through and two aunts who find the season of goodwill no discouragement to their bickering. The Reverend finds himself presiding over an increasingly irritable family Christmas where a few home truths and some astonishing revelations are about to be exchanged! Memorably filmed with Ralph Richardson and Celia Johnson.
