Arthur Christmas

This BAFTA- and Golden Globe-nominated delight features an accomplished and warm-hearted script from the UK’s Sarah Smith and Wales-born Peter Baynham. With a starry voice-cast including the UK’s Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton, this intelligent, earnest and heartfelt family film was co-produced by renowned Bristol-based company, Aardman Animations.





Every Christmas, Santa Claus (Jim Broadbent) delivers presents to all the children on earth using a very high-tech operation at the North Pole. When the unforeseeable happens and one child is forgotten, it’s up to Santa’s youngest son, Arthur (James McAvoy), to ensure the present is delivered before the youngster wakes.
