Annabelle Wallis and Keira Knightley in a strange Xmas movie about the end of the world. The movie shifts so rapidly back and forth between black comedy and mild horror, it's off-putting. Weird film.

So so black comedy that starts out predictable & then does an about-turn with serious undertones. I found most of the characters unlikeable also.

Should have been called: Christmas Apocalypse

Powerful coming of age drama. Good storytelling, a moving watch with a honest message.

It's a weird one...thematically it appeals to me and Annabelle Wallis and Keira Knightley are good actresses but the movie's different pieces don't come together for me. I would have preferred it stayed a black comedy with unlikeable characters or a serious drama that tries to make you care about the characters...the 2 approaches at different moments don't work together.
