Last Christmas


Last Christmas is a romantic comedy by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Oscar-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson (Bridget Jones’s Baby). The film got its idea from George Michael’s unforgettable music. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) is Kate, who works as an Elf in a Christmas shop that is open every day of the year.

Kate’s life is overshadowed by constant bad luck and she repeatedly drifts into bad decisions until she meets Tom, who seems too good and kind to be true. Tom challenges Kate’s cynical worldview. Continuing to live together is very challenging because of their differences, but the most important thing is to listen to the voice of the heart and trust what the heart says.

The Holiday


Two women, one from the United States and one from the United Kingdom, swap homes at Christmastime after bad breakups with their boyfriends. Each woman finds romance with a local man but realizes that the imminent return home may end the relationship.



In an imagined, but not-so-unrealistic world of the future, a small robot, WALL-E, is left to clean up an Earth filled with garbage. He is completely alone except for a small pet cockroach. Surprisingly, one day another robot named EVE appears on Earth, and WALL-E falls in love with her. As the story unfolds, WALL-E drifts into an unprecedented destiny and ultimately fights against human extinction.

The film was awarded the Oscar for best-animated film and the BAFTA award in the same category.

Beauty and the Beast


A handsome but selfish prince is put under a curse that turned him into a monster, which will only be released if the prince meets someone who truly loves him as he is. The prince doesn’t think anyone could fall in love with a monster like him. One day, the beautiful Belle goes into the castle and wants to exchange the place of her father, who is a prisoner in the castle, for her own. Servants enchanted as objects try their best to make the romance between Belle and the cursed prince flourish.

The film has been awarded two Oscars in the music category and was nominated for the best film Oscar.
