Land of the long white beard

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Picture This -

Ev­ery­one loves a Christ­mas movie, and now we have our very own fes­tive film. Kiwi Christ­mas tells the story of Santa who, fed-up of the whole Christ­mas thing, runs away to NZ. When two Kiwi kids fig­ure out who he is, they try to find a way to get him back to the North Pole in time for Christ­mas. In cin­e­mas from Novem­ber. While we’re at it, we’d like to rec­om­mend our go-to hol­i­day films (not all Christ­mas-themed but great all the same). • Frances Ha – un­date­able. Adorable. • Elf – Self-ex­plana­tory. Con­tains elves and Will Fer­rell. • The Hol­i­day – if only all house swaps came with Jude Law. • When Harry Met Sally – “I’ll have what she’s hav­ing”. That line never gets old. • Home Alone – an oldie, but a very, very goodie • Die Hard 1 – Bruce Wil­lis in a Santa hat, and Alan Rick­man in a less cud­dly Christ­mas role.
