The expression “surviving the holidays” takes on a whole other meaning in the trailer for Silent Night.
An intriguing black comedy that combines the Christmas setting… with the apocalypse.
Keira Knightley and Matthew Good play Nell and Simon , the parents of little Art ( Roman Griffin Davis , star of Jojo Rabbit ). The couple invites their friends and family for Christmas dinner, and everything seems perfect: a splendid house in the English countryside, a table full of food, jokes, games, gifts… it is a pity, however, that the world out there is about to end.
Direction and screenplay are by Camille Griffin , on her first feature film. Roman Griffin Davis , for the record, is his son. Silent Night has been presented in some festivals, and will be released on December 3 in American theaters.

The official synopsis
Nell and Simon, parents of little Art, invite friends and family to their wonderful home in the English countryside for Christmas dinner. When the group comes together, it feels like going back to the old days; but behind the laughter and happiness there is something wrong. The world out there is about to end, and there is no gift, party game or Prosecco that can avert humanity’s imminent destruction. Surviving the holidays just got a lot harder.
