Ready to throw your eggnog at me? Ok, here goes. I am not fond of holiday stories.
That said, I loved this smart and quirky tale set on the day before Christmas Eve. It follows three lonely souls (and a dog with wanderlust) through the streets of Philadelphia. There’s Madeleine, the feisty nine-year-old who can really sing; Sarina, the teacher with love troubles; and Lorca, the owner of the Cat’s Pajamas jazz club. All three eventually meet up like instruments in a spectacular finale at the club’s closing time.
