Last Christmas is a movie which I believe inspired by the song itself. The story began with series of Kate’s unfortunate event until one day she met a quirky guy named Tom Webster. They began to hang out and became fast friend.
To be honest, it took me a while to finally decide to watch this movie as I didn’t find it interesting when I watched its trailer. Well, the movie is not that terrible to begin with. However I find that the chemistry between the characters are bit stiff despite of having such amazing talent like Emma Thompson, Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding.
As for the storyline, it is very simple and I don’t have any problem with the simplicity. I love that the film balances comedy and drama skilfully and the plot twist at the near end really surprised me as I expected a different ending.
