CHRISTMAS STAR, A
One wild and woolly Christmas Eve in the sleepy Irish village of Pottersglen, expecting parents Joe and Maria O’Hanlon (Bronagh Waugh, The Fall) are forced to take an emergency detour on the way to the hospital. Born in a barn under the brightest star, Noelle (Erin Galway Kendrick) grows up with an innate magical ability to see the goodness in people and help them to be their very best.
With its once booming snow-globe manufacturing and pottery business struggling to hold its place in the market, the humble village faces economic uncertainty. Financed by shrewd property developer Shepherd (Pierce Brosnan, Mamma Mia!), local upstart Pat McKerrod (Rob James-Collier, Downton Abbey) sets out to make his mark and exploit Pottersglen to his advantage.
It is up to young Noelle and her keen team of soccer playing friends to investigate McKerrod’s shady dealings and turn the situation for the community around before it is too late.
Featuring fun cameos from the likes of Liam Neeson (Love Actually), Kylie Minogue (Moulin Rouge!), Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games) and Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), A Christmas Star is a bright beacon of spirited family entertainment.
