Nothing really brings people closer together over the holidays than some armed robbery and hostage situations. Also domestic disputes are another catalyst for inconvenience during the holiday season, but those happen to everyone. I am the sort of person the revels in the general absurdness of the holiday season, seeking out the imperfect side of the holiday. It’s more because I am tired of the squeaky clean, pure as the undriven snow that permeates a lot of Christmas movies, so when a movie as unconventional as The Ref centers around Christmas Eve and a hostage situation, I tend to take notice.
It’s a dark comedy of a film, but then again, Christmas isn’t always happiness and egg nog.
