Sony’s ‘Happiest Season’ Skips Theaters to Go Straight to Hulu

Another movie is skipping theaters to go straight to streaming this holiday season. Hulu has distribution rights to Sony’s “Happiest Season” in the US, with Sony Pictures keeping rights in all other countries.  

The film, starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis, will premiere on November 25 as a Hulu Original. Clea DuVall directed the film and co-wrote the script with Mary Holland who also acts as a supporting character. Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Daniel Levy, Burl Moseley, Victor Garber and Mary Steenburgen will also costar.

“This holiday season — more than any other — we could all use a little happiness. It was essential to Sony Pictures and to the filmmakers that Clea’s marvelous and fresh holiday-themed romantic comedy come out when the lights are on the trees,” said Nicole Brown, President of TriStar Pictures. “We are excited that Hulu is geared up to make this happen in the U.S. and grateful that they love the movie as much as we do.”

Here’s the full synopsis of the movie. Watch it on Hulu on November 25.

Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner — until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay — is even harder. When Abby (Kristen Stewart) learns that Harper (Mackenzie Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew. Happiest Season is a holiday romantic comedy that hilariously captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family’s acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas.
