Thirty something Kate (Emilia Clarke) has lead a life of bad decisions, men, jobs, problems, one after another. So, when the dashing, funny, daring, and endearing Tom (Henry Golding) enters her life, a modicum of caution is forefront in her mind– it all seems too good to be true. But, perhaps for Kate a little of Tom’s magic is all it will take to switch tracks in life and love. Directed by Paul Feig and Written by Emma Thompson and Greg Wise this endearing romance/comedy certainly checks all the boxes for potential box office return by offering something the same but different. Specifically, starting with a story that loosely parallels A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Fight Club, the reach of this holiday festivus is a broad net cast to reach a wide audience of romantics at heart. Meanwhile star power from Clarke, and Emma Thompson doesn’t hurt the equation either. It’s cute, it’s fun, it’s low in nutrition value, and that’s okay. Maybe worth a matinee now or something to fold laundry to later. Last Christmas is rated PG-13.
