A Christmas Story
A huge Yuletide nostalgia comedy hit in the native US, but didn't do the same business in the UK and I kind of understand why.
From my point of view, I couldn't relate to it because it wasn't my childhood. Perhaps the reasons are both generational and geographical.
It's set in the late-40's and is told through the rather innocent eyes of a young boy in the build up to Christmas for which all he wants is a BB-gun. He goes to school, looks after his kid brother, listens to radio shows and gets his mouth washed out with soap & water whenever he uses foul language.
It's not a bad film by any means and the kid steals the show without any doubt. I just couldn't relate to it. Give me A Christmas Carol anyday.
