Last Christmas

Christmas film + Wham! = perfection. Last Christmas was a huge hit when it was released last year and it always tops our list of festive films to watch. Emilia Clarke plays Kate, a young girl who's getting bored of her everyday life working as an Elf in a Christmas shop when she meets a kind stranger. The two connect with a pretty London-at-Christmas backdrop and George Michael soundtrack – what's not to love?!

Little Women

Ok, it's not technically a holiday film but there is definitely a Christmassy vibe in this Oscar-winning hit. Based on the Louisa May Alcott novel, this modern take on the classic is finally landing on Sky Cinema and we think it's the perfect watch on a cold Christmas Day afternoon.
