Synopsis:

It’s Christmas Eve in the town of Wydenham and the family of Reverend Martin Gregory (Ralph Richardson, Dr Zhivago, The Sound Barrier) come together to celebrate the holiday. The Reverend is a widower with three children: Margaret (Margaret Leighton, The Go-Between): a high-flying career woman in London, Jenny (Celia Johnson, Brief Encounter): a devoted stay-at-home daughter sacrificing her chance at happiness to care for her father, and Mick (Denholm Elliot, A Room With A View): a shallow young man doing his national service in the Army. Added to the mix are the two elderly aunts overseeing events as the eponymous Holly and Ivy, representing the conflict in attitudes at the heart of the family. Before morning, secrets have been spilled and truths must be faced as modern values seemingly clash with old traditions. As Christmas morning begins however, the family attempt to reconcile their differences and discover that perhaps they can find happiness in harmony with each other’s wishes after all.
