SCREENING IN THE MARGARET RVER HEART NEW AUDITORIUM.

Kate harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart… and you gotta have faith.

“Here is a charming, mellow Christmas rom-com, but also a hamper of razor-sharp observations on modern-day dysfunction, both introspective and societal, symptomatic of 2019 Britain. It’s impossible to stay frosty against it.” – Ella Kemp (Culture Whisper)
