The origin story of Father Christmas is re-imagined in Gil Kenan’s live action A Boy Called Christmas. An ordinary young boy called Nikolas sets out on an extraordinary adventure into the snowy north in search of his father who is on a quest to discover the fabled village of the elves, Elfhelm. Taking with him a headstrong reindeer called Blitzen and a loyal pet mouse, Nikolas soon meets his destiny in this magical, comic and endearing story that proves nothing is impossible…

A Boy Called Christmas is adapted from the bestselling book by Matt Haig; the first of five books in the acclaimed series published by Canongate Books.

Starring Maggie Smith, Kristen Wiig, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Michiel Huisman, Toby Jones, Stephen Merchant, Zoe Colletti, and Henry Lawfull.
