A Boy Called Christmas

Directed and co-written by Brit Gil Kenan, alongside UK screenwriter Ol Parker (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), this good-natured and festive film stars an array of UK talent including Maggie Smith, Jim Broadbent, Henry Lawfull and Stephen Merchant. Based on the bestselling book by British author Matt Haig, London-based Blueprint Pictures co-produced.





A young boy called Nikolas (Henry Lawfull) decides to venture to the snowy north in search of his father, who is trying to reach Elfhelm, the fabled village of the elves. Travelling with a strong-willed reindeer called Blitzen and his faithful pet mouse, Nikolas embarks on a remarkable journey in search of his destiny.
