Oprah's "Must See Holiday Movie" Coming to DVD November 7th

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2006 -- "Christmas In The Clouds," the 2005 theatrical comedy that Oprah Winfrey called her "must see holiday movie," will be released on DVD November 7th, by Hannover House.

The film tells the story of a struggling mountain resort that has a surprise visit from a major travel guide whose endorsement would bring instant success. But the hotel staff identifies the wrong guest as the secret reviewer and this sets in motion a comedy of mishaps, mistakes and mistletoe romance. "Christmas In The Clouds" stars Graham Greene, M. Emmet Walsh, Tim Vahle, MariAna Tosca and Sheila Tousey. The film was directed by Kate Montgomery, and produced by Mitchell Stein, Sarah Wasserman and the Community Band of Mohican Indians.

"This is a charming romantic comedy about a luxury hotel resort run by Native American Yuppies," said Roger Ebert on his nationally televised film review show. "It should be seen by everyone, even you," he concluded.

"'Christmas In The Clouds' is an emphatically old-fashioned and family-friendly comedy," wrote the San Francisco Chronicle. "A delightful romantic comedy," said Daily Variety. "Uplifting," wrote USA Today.

The film was selected by "O" Magazine as "Oprah's Must See Holiday Movie," a coveted endorsement which should prove popular with video renters and consumers this season. The DVD will be released November 7th, with a suggested retail price of $19.95 for mass merchants. The film will also be available for video rental on DVD through Blockbuster Video, Netflix, Hollywood Video, Movie Gallery and other rental outlets nationwide.
