Angela's Christmas is a 2017 Irish-Canadian animation film directed by Damien O'Connor, written by Will Collins and Damien O'Connor and starring the Oscar nominees Ruth Negga in the role of Angela’s mother, and Lucy O'Connell as Angela.
The plot is based on the children's story from Pulitzer Prize winning Irish author Frank McCourt, and is set in Limerick, Ireland in the 1910s. The story revolves around Angela's (Lucy O'Connell) desire to make sure everyone is having a great Christmas.
Angela's Christmas was executive produced by Frank McCourt's widow Ellen McCourt. This was Frank McCourt's only children's story, from a story his mother Angela told him and his brother Malachy McCourt, as a child. Malachy McCourt provides the narration. Dolores O'Riordan contributed to the soundtrack.
