Last Christmas

Dir. Paul Feig. UK/USA, 2019. 1h 43m. Starring Emilia Clarke, Emma Thompson, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Patti LuPone, Ingrid Oliver.

Nothing’s going right for a young, frustrated Londoner working as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. She’s drinking too much, partying too hard, and her health suffers as a consequence. However, does a Yuletide romance lurk just around the corner? A feel-good Christmas rom-com written by Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson and directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids).

‘It's a guilty pleasure nobody has to feel guilty about indulging in.’ ★★★★ Charles Bramesco, The AV Club

‘Here is a charming, mellow Christmas rom-com, but also a hamper of razor-sharp observations on modern-day dysfunction, both introspective and societal, symptomatic of 2019 Britain. It's impossible to stay frosty against it’ ★★★★ Ella Kemp, Culture Whisper
