The series kicks off with “This Christmas,” a 2007 film starring Regina King, Loretta Devine, Delroy Lindo, and Idris Elba, about a far-flung African American family that is finally reunited for the holidays (PG-13, 117 minutes). The series continues with “The Family Stone” on Wednesday December 9th, and “Trading Places” on Wednesday December 16th.
