It’s a special Christmas for Jessica Alba…
The 36-year-old half-Mexican American actress is starring the dark comedy El Camino Christmas.
Directed by Dave Talbert, the film features an ensemble cast that includes Alba, Luke Grimes, Tim Allen, Dax Shepard and Vincent D’Onofrio.
It’s also the next film from Hidden Figures filmmaker Ted Melfi. The Netflix film will start streaming on December 8.
The project, 10 years in the making, was produced by Melfi and scripted by him and Chris Wehner.
The story follows a young man (Grimes) who seeks out a father he has never met and, through no fault of his own, ends up barricaded in a liquor store with five other people on Christmas Eve. The story takes place in the fictitious town of El Camino, Nevada.
Alba’s latest project follows her appearances in the films Mechanic: Resurrection and The Veil.
