WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
In the days leading up to Christmas, a young boy named Tom (Connor) unexpectedly finds Santa Claus (Broadbent) in his garden shed, hiding after crash-landing his new sleigh and losing his reindeer among the streets of London. However, when Santa is soon arrested and put in prison, it’s up to Tom and his father Steve (Spall) to break him out and return him to Lapland in time for Christmas Eve…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Get Santa is a funny and charming new take on the timeless legend that is Father Christmas/Santa Claus/whatever you want to call him, including a lead performance by the man who was presumably born to be him, Jim Broadbent.
