“Let It Snow,” Netflix’s Christmas teen rom-com, features a Filipino family

After his breakout performances in the “Spider-Man” movies with Tom Holland, Fil-Am actor Jacob Batalon momentarily sheds his Marvel Universe character to play a high student and aspiring DJ who desperately wants to host a holiday party for his friends in “Let It Snow” — a charming movie about the not-so-secret life of American teenagers in a small mid-western town on Christmas Eve.

In an organic way, the movie reflects what America looks like today.

It has leads and supporting characters from diverse backgrounds, and it features stories about minorities, including Filipino Americans like Batalon’s family in the movie.
