My Dad's Christmas Date
- 1h 31m
In many ways, David and Jules Evans relationship is no different from that of most fathers and sixteen-year-old daughters. He struggles to understand her, she refuses to communicate with him. He wants to be involved in her life, she wants her own space. In one important aspect, however, David and Jules are separated from the rest of society: the death of Jules' mum, and David's wife, in a car crash two years previous. With both struggling to cope with the rigors of daily life in the wake of this devastating loss, Jules decides to take matters into her own hands. Creating profiles for David on multiple online dating platforms, Jules sets out to find her dad a partner and, for herself, someone with whom she can talk. The question is, in the search for a new mum, will Jules find her old dad?
A heartwarming Christmas film about love and loss
I really really enjoyed this film, it reminded me slightly of The Descendents in that it's about family relationships and how they survive after a huge loss. There are some sad moments, but it's tackled with a light hand and some of the comedy is laugh out loud funny. It is set in the beautiful City of York at Christmas. I know York really well and it was fun spotting different parts of the town. It's not a rom com, it's more of a comedy drama.
