LOST AT CHRISTMAS Directed by Ryan Hendrick Starring: Natalie Clark, Kenny Boyle, Sanjeen Kohli, Fraser Hines, Caitlin Blackwood, Sylvester McCoy, Clare Grogan Why are you alone out here on Christmas Eve? - Jen Well, just let’s say that today didn’t go as planned - Rob You and me both - Jen Two strangers stranded in the Scottish Highlands on Christmas eve team up to try and get back home in time for Christmas. Based on the acclaimed Short film “Perfect Strangers” (2015). If you are looking for a festive film this year, then look no further than this delightful feature that offers the joy and comfort and laughter that one generally expects from such a film. Here is an authentically Scottish Christmas film. Everything there is to love about Christmas is featured in this heart warming romantic comedy which will get you reaching for the tissues. Set in the remote Scottish town of Fort William on Christmas eve, both Jen and Rob feature major heartbreak from cheating to a rejected wedding proposal. All is not well for the pair, and things only get worse when they realise the last train to Glasgow is no longer running, the snow is blocking the roads and all they want to do is get home to their family . Jen and Rob are each other’s last hope at saving Christmas as they team up to travel back home. All cannot go easy: we follow their journey through saving Christmas and maybe love? Natalie Clark seemed to be the film’s beating heart as she nailed every joke and was a completely albeit crazy character. In the first 15 minutes , we see her punch a cheater in the face and scream that all men are “illegimate children”. In comparison Kenny Boyle seemed to miss the mark on some of the jokes. But probablly they both made a good team. We see Jen go back to her cheating ex’s house and steal his luxurious car in hope to travel back to Glasgow. What follows is an outstanding moment when Rob realises Jen has just stolen a car. Rob 28
