Last Christmas (2019)

A heart warming film by director Paul Feig which starts strong and builds slow. We have it all, dysfunctional family, a childhood dream, an unfulfilling job and no purpose.

Emilia Clarke is as adorable as ever, playing out a classic pattern of behaviour. Her boss, the graceful Michelle Yeoh is supportive, but stern. Enter the charming Henry Golding, who comes a breath of fresh air in Emilia’s life.

Her relationship with her mother, the writer and producer of the film, the extremely talented Emma Thompson, is a tumultuous one, but not for no reason. She cares and the audience ends up caring as well.

A perfect Christmas film with the memorable songs from George Michael.

3.5/5
