The Review

Christmas, a time for family and friends to come together to celebrate. Here at Hawthorne college, a bunch of sorority sisters decides to celebrate together since many of them don't have a home to go home to. Some of them don't feel much like celebrating due to personal and political issues. When those affected decide to confront what they are dealing with, they end up with more than they had bargained for. Another sorority on campus has taken it upon themselves to take up the fight as well but in a different direction. Calvin Hawthorne, the founder of the college had a tradition and the actions taken by the sisters have disrupted that. Now, the boys must do whatever is necessary to preserve their history, at whatever cost necessary. Do you think you know what side to root for? Don't be so quick to decide... There are arguments for both sides but when what is really happening comes to light, it complicates an already complicated situation. Who if any will come out victorious? Will Christmas ever be the same? So many questions that can only be answered by watching and experiencing this for yourself.

The subject matter(s) that are addressed here are maybe a bit heavy for this type of movie but they play into the story as a whole. This isn't for anyone who is easily offended or overly sensitive. It likely goes beyond a typical guilty rating as it would be difficult to recommend this for anyone under the age of 17.

There's a bonus scene in the credits that you'll want to stick around for.
