This is the school nativity as you thought you'd forgotten it!
An infants class full of misfits put on a school nativity play for their parents. The play itself doesn't run to plan but then it reflects the backstage squabbles, arguments, and power battles ("I'm gonna be Mary!"). Stephen Tompkinson is wonderful as the play's narrator, determined to impress his parents, and Julia Sawalha, Mina Anwar and Dervla Kirwan's trio of on-off friendships bring back the days when friendships were made and broken and made again all in the space of an hour. All this plus an iguana named Michael Owen makes a charming film for a winter's evening in.
