ALMOST CHRISTMAS is a comedy drama about a dysfunctional family gathering for their first Christmas following the death of the matriarch.

Language

There is moderate bad language ('bitch'), some of which is directed. Milder bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'bastards', 'ass', 'son of a bitch', 'screw up', 'butt' and 'damn'.

Sex

There are moderate sex references, both verbal and visual. These include a scene in which a man tries to help a woman who is stuck in a window, but their positions and movements make it look to a passing neighbour as if they are engaging in sexual activity. In another scene, a woman's reaction implies that she is being shown pictures of sexual activity on a phone. There are verbal references to 'banging' and a woman complains about being thought of as 'easy to get into bed'. There is also some comic wordplay on the terms 'balls' and 'nuts'.

There is also a sub-plot about a young man misusing prescription drugs he has been given for a sports injury.
