Left at the altar by her fiancé, Rachel (Elizabeth Hurley) takes her best friends on her honeymoon to the Caribbean, where she gets her groove on and finds love at the beach.

Katharyn Howe, vice president of Global Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Screen Media, negotiated the deal with Karinne Behr, chief executive officer of MSR Media International and Philippe Martinez.

“Christmas in the Caribbean was my fourth film shot in the beautiful islands of St. Kitts and Nevis with my dear friend and exceptional artist Elizabeth Hurley. I am so happy to have the fantastic team at Screen Media come on board to distribute Christmas in the Caribbean – they are the ideal partner to introduce this romantic comedy to audiences in the U.S.,” commented director Philippe Martinez.

“The title of Christmas in the Caribbean really says it all for us,” said Screen Media in a statement. “We love the stunning tropical setting of the film, the romantic ‘second chance at love’ storyline blended with a holiday-themed story of togetherness, and of course, the striking cast led by the inimitable Elizabeth Hurley.”
