Blue Finch Film Releasing and Magic Monkey Films are excited to announce that they are bringing Christmas cheer to the UK early with ‘Lost At Christmas‘ arriving in cinemas from 4th December – ahead of the film’s digital release on the 7th!
Directed by BAFTA nominee Ryan Hendrick, the film is based on the acclaimed short film Perfect Strangers and is Scotland’s first traditional Christmas movie. Featuring an incredible cast, including, Sylvester McCoy (Dr Who / The Hobbit), Natalie Clark (The Last Bus), Kenny Boyle, Sanjeev Kohli (Still Game) & Clare Grogan (Gregory’s Girl) to name a few.
Lost At Christmas is set in the remote Scottish town of Fort William, on Christmas Eve, when life is turned upside down for Jen (Natalie Clark) and Rob (Kenny Boyle). Suddenly finding themselves heartbroken, single and stranded, they team up to try and reach home 100 miles away to be with their families. “Borrowing” Jen’s now ex-boyfriend’s classic car, the pair hit the road, but it’s not long before the weather turns for the worse forcing them to continue their journey on foot.
Bickering and bonding across the snowy Moors of Glencoe, they eventually arrive at a remote inn where they meet other guests dead set on avoiding the traditional Christmas joy. However, as Christmas Day draws closer, will happiness emerge and draw Jen and Rob together?
Lost at Christmas will bring you in from the cold, lighten your heart and provide the ultimate feel-good Christmas cinema experience.
Director Ryan Hendrick, who is excited to share his latest project with the world, said: “I am beyond thrilled our festive heart warmer is heading out into the world. It was a thrill to make and be surrounded by such a group of talented artists.”
Lost at Christmas will be released in UK cinemas from 4th December and on Digital from 7th December
Really looking forward to this one, certainly looks like it has plenty of charm!
