Based on the classic novel Lost Christmas is an Urban Fairy Tale set in Manchester. The film tells the story of how a series of tragic events blighting a young boy s life one Christmas Eve take him on a journey where a chance meeting with a mysterious stranger may have the key to help and give him a perfect Christmas. Goose is a ten year old boy who on Christmas Eve not thinking about his actions hides his father s car keys in the hope that he won t leave to attend an urgent emergency rescue. This is a decision Goose will always regret. As his mother gets her keys and drives his dad to work, Goose doesn t realize that this is the last time he will see his parents as ten minutes later his mother and father are killed in a car crash. Flash forward a year and its Christmas Eve once again, we see Goose is no longer the bright, energetic ten-year-old boy he once was, and is now a streetwise kid who is supporting his Nan through petty crime. Enter Anthony a mysterious enigmatic man who appears, seemingly out of nowhere, on Manchester s snowy streets. Despite being lost himself, he has the compulsion and ability to find the lost, uncovering truths that will eventually transform the life of Goose and those affected by his decision. But is Anthony s ability to heal real, or just an illusion? Lost Christmas is a magical story about self-sacrifice and destiny, brimming with emotion and humour, this beautifully modern fairytale has all the ingredients of a classic Christmas film. Starring BAFTA, Olivier and two-time Emmy award-winner, Eddie Izzard as Anthony, along with Jason Flemyng (Stardust, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, X-Men: First Class) and written and directed by EMMY, BAFTA and Berlin Bear award-winner John Hay, between them they have created a truly magical and classic Christmas film.

This is one for the whole family, though some younger children may not understand parts of it, my then 7 and 9 year olds loved it and have re-watched it several times.
I won't say alot about the story as I could easily spoil it for those who haven't already seen it, but it's kind of like a jigsaw that slowly pieces together and it's not until right at the end when we see the whole picture. This is something a little different to enjoy at Christmas, I can't wait to finally own this on Dvd.
I don't normally like Eddie Izzard as a comedian but as a actor he is great.
What a lovely story this is ,made me cry and makes you think about things you don't want to think about.
Lost Christmas has a magical quality but is set very firmly in the real-life world in which we live. It touches on coping with the loss of a child, family break up and living with people who have dementia. It approaches these with a blunt realism and achieves the perfect balance between not softening the blow too much for the younger audience whilst never forgetting that it is a family drama.
There are a couple of interconnecting stories running throughout the film that are seamlessly and cleverly interwoven with the main one which focuses on the unfolding relationship between the mysterious stranger and Goose and their ultimate destiny. Izzard pulls off a brilliant performance in a challenging role having to achieve the right emotional equilibrium without appearing to be cold and wooden at one and ‘hamming it up’ at the other. Look out also for Geoffrey Palmer who makes an appearance as Doctor Clarence.
Overall, Lost Christmas is a superb and refreshingly different festive family drama. Despite the magical story line it has a gritty undercurrent that ultimately focuses on relationship, the decisions we make in life and how these can influence the outcome.
One thing I must flag up; at the end of the film the original BBC television version featured the Paul McCartney song; ‘Wonderful Christmastime’ performed by Tom McRae.Read more ›
