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 school student and aspiring DJ who desperately wants to host a holiday party for his friends.

Batalon is part of "Let It Snow," a charming Netflix movie about the not-so-secret life of American teenagers in a small midwestern town.
