“Last Christmas,” a new holiday-themed romantic comedy that stars “Crazy Rich Asians” actor Henry Golding and “Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke, looks like something we’re going to fa-la-la-la-love.
“Last Christmas,” directed by Paul Feig, follows the story Kate (Emilia Clark), whose life is an absolute mess and works as a Scroogey elf at a Christmas shop. But all of that changes when she accidentally meets Tom (Henry Golding) and a pigeon, unfortunately, poops on her face.
Their paths cross again when Kate accidentally — and literally — bumps into Tom. The two grow closer and Kate opens up about how she was ill. Tom who seems always willing to help and even volunteers at a homeless shelter, starts to rub off on Kate.
Fans took to Twitter to voice their speculations that there is an unexpected twist to this rom-com.
henry golding doesn’t speak to anyone but emilia clarke in that trailer. he also wears the same outfit multiple times. therefore, he is a ghost, or her conscience, or her guardian angel.
