Just in case Love Actually has been on loop this Christmas, here are five of our favourite Netflix films to binge this festive season.

 

The Princess Switch

Think Prince and the Pauper, but make it Christmas. Vanessa Hudgens stars as both the Duchess of Montenaro and Chicago pastry chef in a switch-a-roo situation where romance

inevitably follows. A family classic reminding us of love, sacrifice and the spirit of holidays.

The Christmas Chronicles

Ever wanted to catch Santa Claus red-handed? This family friendly adventure follows the scheme of two children who find themselves in all sorts of trouble catching the man in the red suit. A quirky tale that diverts from your traditional Santa storyline. He may even end up in jail.

The Polar Express

Wrestling with the existence of Santa Claus, a young boy climbs aboard the Polar Express headed for the North Pole. A fantastical, eerie, nostalgia-filled film that rekindles the child in us all. The Polar Express is a tale reminding us of things beyond paper-wrapped goodies and hot cocoa before the clock strikes twelve.
