Little Women – available from December 11
Little Women is another classic film for all the family, which focuses on four sisters living during the American Civil War.
The audience sees the world mainly through the eyes of Jo (played by Saiorse Ronan in this version) who is strong willed and wants to support her family through her writing, something women were not expected to do.
As time goes on we see her and her sisters grow up and face hardships and difficulties as they navigate the world.
Last Christmas – available in December
If you can’t get enough of Dame Emma Thompson, Last Christmas is an ideal follow up to Love Actually.
The movie, written by and starring Dame Emma as well as Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, shows a young woman drifting through life and struggling to feel the Christmas spirit, until she meets a mysterious man (played by Henry Golding) and begins to fall for him.
The story is inspired by the Wham! song of the same name and George Michael’s dulcet tones feature throughout.
The Polar Express
While The Polar Express may have been designed for children to enjoy, it truly is one for all the family.
Featuring the voice of Tom Hanks, The Polar Express tells the story of a sceptical young boy who sees a mysterious train arrive at his door on Christmas Eve.
He is invited aboard by the conductor and goes on a journey to visit Santa Claus at the North Pole.
It’s a Wonderful Life
This story is truly a classic and sees how the power of positivity and Christmas can change someone’s life.
James Stewart stars as George Bailey, a man on the brink of suicide when a guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (played by Henry Travers,) arrives to show him how he has changed lives.
The story is powerful and tragic, and one which for many marks the beginning of the Christmas season.
