Last Christmas: review

There were fine performances from Henry Golding and Emma Thompson (co-writer) as Kate's Yugoslavian mother. She delivered some of the best lines and was a wonderful breath of fresh air and vibrancy to the film. A disappointment and a big one at that was the relationship between Kate and Tom.

Last Christmas review - cliched festive failure

It seems fitting at this point to use one of the hoariest of film criticism cliches and say that this was a film that lingered long after I left the cinema. In this case, it lingered in the form of a tension headache caused by 103 minutes of mortified wincing.

Last Christmas review

Whilst George Michael's music isn't incorporated as effectively as one might wish, Emma Thompson and co-writer Bryony Kimmings take inspiration from the titular song for arguably the most telegraphed ending you'll see all year. Still, the 'good will to all' theme ensures that Last Christmas, for all its syrupy stylings, has its heart in the right place.
