Hotel, motel, Holly Day Inn… join Colin Baker, Anita Dobson & all-star cast for a festive feel-good British romcom where a loving daughter must solve a too many rooms at the inn problem for her Dad
Pack your bags – and don’t forget the mistletoe – for Christmas at The Holly Day Inn, a brand-new British romcom that will bring you comfort and joy this holiday season.
With an all-star cast of British acting greats, including Colin Baker (Doctor Who), Philip Martin Brown (Tinker Tailor Solider Spy), Anita Dobson (EastEnders) and Mark Arnold (Blade Runner 2049), this feelgood festive feature from writer Lisa Chapman (Heart of a Champion) is set for its UK digital debut this November courtesy of 101 Films.
Emma Holly (Tamla Kari – The Inbetweeners Movie) is a high-flying executive on the brink of success, but when she’s passed over yet again for a promotion, she decides to quit her job and head to The Holly Day Inn to spend Christmas with her father Ben (Baker).
When she arrives, Emma finds the Inn has no guests and her father is very low and lacking in festive spirit – he’s running out of money and a large developer is urging him to sell up.
Determined to save the hotel – and Christmas – Emma must come up with a plan... A trip to Molly’s (Dobson) coffee shop and a chance encounter with a charming stranger, Oliver (Kevin Leslie – The Rise of the Krays) – who she assumes is a travel writer – leads to an idea that might just solve everything. But is Oliver really who she thinks he is?
With a loveable, multigenerational cast and a heartwarming narrative, this charming and fun love story is the perfect film to cosy up to this Christmas. Get ready to spend Christmas at The Holiday Inn for some feel-good, festive fun.
