“Last Christmas” came out on November 8 2019. The romantic Christmas comedy definitely took me by surprise. “Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Her last date with disaster? That of having accepted to work as Santa’s elf for a department store. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.”
Kate is played Emilia Clarck.

Her family seems as if it had fallen apart since Kate was in the hospital. Her father doesn’t like being home near their Mother because her mother is a bit on the non stop worrying side, and her sister is keeping a secret from her parents as well.
