Angie: Lost Girls Film Streams December 18th: A Powerful Narrative Aimed at Awareness of Child Trafficking Stars Olivia D'Abo, Dylan Sprayberry, Randall Batinkoff, Jane Widdop, MC Lyte

Angie: Lost Girls  is a new film streaming nationwide on December 18th, 2020. It's the story of another epidemic in this country and around the world - child trafficking. As a narrative feature, it tells the story of Angie Morgan, a teenage girl living in a normal sububan home with caring parents who falls prey to the traffickers, finding herself caught in their web with little hope of getting out. As she is caught in the ring, being brutalized by her captors and the men she is forced to encounter daily, her parents and the police work feverishly to rescue her. It is a story of heartbreak, courage and hope which casts light on a subject few people want to accept can happen anywhere. The film will be available to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms on December 18, 2020, followed by a DVD release date on December 22, 2020.

Playing the lead Angie is newcomer Jane Widdop. Dylan Sprayberry (CW's Teen Wolf) ) is the teenage boy that lures her into this world. Her parents are played by Olivia D'Abo (The Wonder Years, Law & Order, Star Wars: Clone Wars) and Randall Batinkoff (Bad Grandmas, DC Legends of Tomorrow, Relativity). Other cast include Anthony Montgomery (The Family Business, General Hospital, Star Trek: Enterprise), MC Lyte (Girls Trips, SWAT, Patti Cake$), and Cherie Jiminez (Pretty Little Liars, Nova Vita).

This Year's Christmas Con by That's 4 Entertainment Comes Straight to Your Home: Celebrity Panels and More Experiences from your Favorite Christmas Movie Actors from Hallmark, Lifetime and More

 

By Suzanne Ordas Curry

Attention Christmas movie lovers! One good thing about an event being virtual is that you can participate in it from wherevery you are, even sitting on your couch in your favorite Christmas jammies and socks. So this year, you don't have to travel to Jersey (despite what you hear, it's a great place...) to experience the thrill and spirit of Christmas Con! Dates are December 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th, 2020.

If you don't know what Christmas Con is, it's a spectacular gathering of all things Christmas movies, Christmas and Christmas movie stars (mainly from Hallmark Channel and Lifetime). I was one of the lucky ones that scored a ticket to last year's first ever con (truth be told, I'm press) and boy was I not disappointed. It was a wonderful gathering of everything you love about Christmas movies, including many of the actors you've probably only dreamed about ever meeting. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the convention hall was filled, It was a sold-out event, but also it was filled with happy people, and I noticed lots of families,  moms with their daughters and grandmas.  These movies appeal to many.
