The film, directed by Paul Feig who also worked on Bridesmaids, follows Kate (Clarke), an unlucky girl employed at a year-round Christmas store owned by Crazy Rich Asians actress Michelle Yeoh.

Kate’s luck and self confidence change when she meets Tom (Golding), a mysterious stranger that she keeps running into, who encourages her to live fully, sing again, and reconnect with her loved ones. 

Viewers will also get a look at how London is beautifully transformed with bright lights and colourful decorations for Christmas.

If that doesn’t convince you to watch the film, it is also the last collaboration of the late George Michael, who wrote the famous song “Last Christmas” and other hits. 

Don’t miss this feel-good Christmas movie during the most wonderful time of the year! 

Check out the trailer below and be sure to get a ticket when it comes out on November 8.
