I love Christmas movies and could quite happily watch them all year round! There are so many to mention from classics such as Miracle on 34th Street to new releases such as the one I am looking forward to watching, Last Christmas. Here’s a roundup of Christmas movies from the last decade.
Old miser Scrooge is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future who aim to rid him of his contempt of friendship, love and all things Christmas. In order to do so, the ghosts take him on a journey through time, opening his eyes to the truths he is yet to face and the consequences should he refuse to do so. But in the end it is up to old Scrooge himself to realise the emptiness of his existence and open up his heart before it is too late.
Shabby, under-achieving primary school teacher Mr Maddens works at a school that competes annually with a local private school for the best production of the Christmas nativity play. Tired of always playing second fiddle to his arch rival, Gordon Shakespeare, Maddens idly concocts a white lie centred around his ex-girlfriend, Hollywood producer Jennifer, in which he boasts that she is coming to see his play with a view to turning it into a film. What he omits to mention is that he and she have not spoken to one another for years. Now, with the expectations and burning ambitions of parents and pupils running high, can he possibly turn his elaborate fiction into reality in time to make everyone’s Christmas wishes come true?
