Based on a book of the same name written by Matthew Haig this Christmas movie is a story about hope and belief that even though all about you are saying there is no such thing or you cant you just might find that you can.

I starts off with Aunt Ruth played my Maggie Smith coming to babysit 3 children whose mother has just died, their father has just been called into work so he has called on the Great Aunt Ruth who the children seem to think is the worst thing that can happen to them to look after them.

Her bedtime story happens to be about a boy called Nikolas (Henry Lawfull) and the story unfold from there. He lives in a forest in Finland with his poor woodcutter dad (Michiel Huisman). They are so poor that when the dotty king (played by Jim Broadbent with endearing spoiled-child petulance) offers a reward to anyone who can bring hope to the land, Nikolas’s dad goes off in search of Elfhelm, the fabled kingdom of elves.

I found the movie easy to watch and enjoyed it a Christmas Movie that any age can watch and enjoy. A story off Christmas and it's fabled origins.
