From director Paul Feig and Academy Award-winning' screenwriter Emma Thompson comes a heartfelt romantic comedy " inspired by the unforgettable music of George Michael. Emilia Clarke stars as Kate, who works as an elf at a year-round holiday shop. Kate faces an endless streak of bad luck and poor decision-making until she meets Tom (Henry Golding), a kind-hearted man with a mysterious past who challenges her cynical world view. It seems like nothing can keep this mismatched couple together, but sometimes you gotta listen to your heart... and you gotta have faith.
This likeable romantic comedy is just the thing to cheer you up during these worrying times. Emilia Clarke plays Kate, a selfish, careless young woman who meets Tom, a kind, compassionate man. We discover the reason why she is so cynical later in the film. Tom is mysterious and appears to be hiding something. We thought we had that figured out, but we were wrong! Emma Thompson plays an East European matriarch, Kate's mother, to great effect. Light-hearted, easy to watch, we really enjoyed it.
