A less ferocious (I think it’s the lack of dragon) Emilia Clarke plays Kate, a 26 year older Londoner, struggling to put her life back together after a heart transplant she had last Christmas. After once being the life of the party, she has turned to sex and booze for solace.

Kate works in a Christmas shop as an Elf and of an evening unsuccessfully auditions for shows. Just as she thinks her life couldn’t sink any lower, she meets Tom (Henry Goulding) outside her shop and begins a flirtatious conversation. Although a flirty conversation is pretty standard for Kate, she soon realises that Tom really does care for her, and this starts a change for the better.

She begins helping the homeless, and she reconnects with her family of Yugoslav immigrants, including her mother Petra (Emma Thompson). Despite the twist ending,  Last Christmas  doesn’t make a dent on the British Christmas rom-com behemoth,  Love Actually .

We all need stories like these at Christmas time though and  Last Christmas  scratches that itch for this season. You basically know what to expect; you may laugh, you’ll probably cry, but more importantly it will give you that fuzzy holiday feeling and remind you that Christmas is just around the corner.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
