A Very Shane Black Christmas

Writer-director Shane Black has often used the generally accepted joy of the holiday season as a counterpoint for his irreverent, action-oriented scripts. But these scripts are also about unlikely partners finding each other—one with a family, the other with at least a familial connection. This pull toward connection and finding your place in the world is especially poignant in the holiday season as travelers return home and to the people who know them best. As nontraditional as they are, Shane Black’s films are enduring holiday favorites.
