On Wednesday, November 28th at 7:30 p.m. The Avon Theatre presents THE FITZGERALD FAMILY CHRISTMAS followed by a post-film Q&A with filmmaker and actor, Ed Burns (SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, THE BROTHERS MCMULLEN, ALEX CROSS).

Ticket prices are as follows: Carte Blanche Members: FREE, Members: $10, Nonmembers: $15. Call the Avon business office at 203-661-0321 or the box office at 203-967-3660, x2 for tickets.

ABOUT THE FILM: With THE FITZGERALD FAMILY CHRISTMAS, Burns returns to the working-class, Irish-American roots of THE BROTHERS MCMULLEN. Reuniting with McMullen co-stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights), and Mike McGlone, along with Noah Emmerich (LITTLE CHILDREN, BEAUTIFUL GIRLS) and Kerry Bishé (NEWLYWEDS, RED STATE), Burns seamlessly weaves an ensemble story of adult siblings dealing with the desire of their estranged father (Ed Lauter, THE ARTIST, THE LONGEST YARD) to return home for Christmas for the first time since he walked out on his family 20 years ago. Family rifts emerge, and like with any family, Christmas brings a mixed bag of complicated emotions and dynamics. Alliances form, old wounds are reopened or glossed over, and the possibility for a new hope and forgiveness emerges. In English | 103 Minutes

ABOUT ED BURNS: Lauded by critics and audiences alike, Ed Burns gained international recognition for his first feature film THE BROTHERS MCMULLEN, which won the Grand Jury prize at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival. The film, which Burns wrote, directed and starred in, was shot on a budget of $25,000 and went on to gross over $10 million at the domestic box office. Burns' second film, the romantic comedy SHE'S THE ONE starring Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, reinforced Burns' versatile talent as a writer, director, and actor. Burns continues to write, direct, star in and produce his films, including the relationship comedy SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK, PURPLE VIOLETS, NICE GUY JOHNNY and NEWLYWEDS. As an actor, Burns starred opposite Tom Hanks and Matt Damon in Steven Spielberg’s SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. He also starred in the thriller 15 MINUTES opposite Robert De Niro, CONFIDENCE opposite Dustin Hoffman, and the hit 27 DRESSES opposite Katherine Heigl. Burns starred opposite Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox in ALEX CROSS and his recent acting projects include FRIENDS WITH KIDS and MAN ON A LEDGE. Ed Burns was born in Woodside, Queens and raised on Long Island. While at Hunter College in New York City, Burns switched his focus from English to filmmaking before quickly moving on to make THE BROTHERS MCMULLEN. He lives in New York City with his wife and two children.
