Fes­tive fall­outs

sur­viv­ing christ­mas with the rel­a­tives

Now (UK) - - TV -

Out 30 Novem­ber Christ­mas prom­ises to be any­thing but merry for the bick­er­ing clan gath­er­ing be­neath the leaky roof of a crum­bling coun­try house in this fes­tive Bri­tish com­edy. Ex­pect mild chuck­les rather than belly laughs, yet as the Yule­tide dis­as­ters mount up you’ll share more than a mo­ment of fel­low feel­ing with th­ese fraz­zled folk, in­clud­ing Gemma Whe­lan and Joely Richard­son’s chalk-and-cheese sis­ters, Ju­lian Oven­den’s ineffectual dad and Ronni An­cona’s woozy sin­gle­ton. Look out, too, for fa­mil­iar faces Michael Lan­des, Sally Phillips, Pa­tri­cia Hodge and James Fox.
