Last Christmas: Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is 'BLOODY' annoyed with fans; Here's Why

We last saw Emilia Clarke turning into the Mad Queen in HBO's "Game of Thrones", though she's been building her film career steadily since the series debuted in 2011. He is as bubbly as she is depressed.

Dame Emma co-stars as her mother in the Christmas romantic comedy, and Clarke believes the film reflects her views.

Santa runs a tight sleigh, and Kate/Elf's productivity has been flagging since her health issues a year previous. But because Thompson gifted us with the most moving scene in a holiday movie ever - the heart-wrenching, wordless Joni Mitchell scene in Love, Actually - we forgive her for nearly anything.

Kate's old-country Yugoslavian mom Petra (Emma Thompson) cuddles and sings to her while putting her down for ruining her life. Kate starts to question herself and the situation she is in because she is used to nothing ever going right.

One day Kate meets Tom.

Director Feig has built an interesting body of work, and while "Last Christmas" feels much more like a Thompson film than a Feig film (rapidly wordy, delightfully goofy), he brings a swift bounciness to the material. When we 1st meet up with Kate, she's entrance and middle in her church youth choir, singing a soaring solo in her native Yugoslavia property back in 1999. I admit, I kept waiting for Last Christmas to elevate to the hallowed ground occupied by contemporary holiday romcoms like Love, Actually, The Holiday or The Family Stone.

The New York Times shares the same thoughts, saying that "the actors look good together... but her character's strenuous perkiness and his character's damp sincerity cancel each other out". When Kate ultimately warms up to him and asks for his telephone amount, he tells her he still left his cellphone at property ... in the cabinet.

I also chuckled when Kate, who yearns to be a singer but is working as an elf at a store, says something morbid to Tom. Her courting everyday living is a sequence of one particular-evening-stands that stop in disaster, and she's scarcely clinging to a menial retail task at a vacation boutique that specializes in really horrifying Christmas-themed novelties. You will probably guess the twist which takes a long time to reveal but the lesson to be glad you are alive and to change a sulking, glum, "I hate everything" personality is a worthy one.

While there is but a tenuous link to Wham! star Michael (Kate's a big fan, apparently, and plays his songs sometimes) there's more than enough Christmas to go round. Once the target audience gets past the idea that this isn't the cookie cutter rom com they were expecting, "Last Christmas" will live on. He knows how to make movies that stay with us. I'm one of the few critics that gave a good review to The Holiday (Jack Black, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet). But "Last Christmas" captures a diverse London of immigrants and outsiders, and gravitates not toward its tourist landmarks but its street dwellers. Golding, who had earlier appeared in "Crazy Rich Asians", has a charming disposition, but is short-changed by the script. Let everyone know with a comment!
