Great family Christmas movie, set (for once!) in the sun and not the snow, half the world (maybe more??) have hot Christmas times! A family movie that rediscovers the joy and heart of Christmas. Great cast and acting. Take two jaded parents, who have grown apart, two kids determined to have a magical Christmas, despite the family drama’s. Throw in Santa, who is tried of demands from materialistic youngsters, then add a does of a group of over zealous conservation officers, with a backdrop of beautiful New Zealand beaches and you have the feelgood movie of the season. Great for families with kids up to 13/14. Hopefully, this becomes our Kiwi classic and we relegate Home Alone to the dusty shelves.
Stars : Luca Andrews, June Bishop, Jonathan Callinan
