Tribeca Film has acquired rights to Director Edward Burns’s The Fitzgerald Family Christmas, which will premiere this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Tribeca Film anticipates a late-November release of the film, to coincide with the holiday season.

Burns’s last release was the 2011 Newlyweds, a top selling title, according to a statement by Tribeca Enterprises.

The Fitzgerald Family Christmas presents the story of a “return to the working-class, Irish-American roots of The Brothers McMullen.” The film co-stars Connie Britton of Friday Night Lights fame, and Michael McGlone.

“Family dynamics around the holiday are a rich vein, brought to life on screen by Ed Burns’ unique ability to create relatable, intimate and affecting moments,” said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises.
