133: Home Alone

Published Wednesday, 9 December, 2015

This year, we’re celebrating Christmas a little early (there’s a small, indie sci-fi coming out on 17 December, don’t know if you’ve heard?) with a look at a family Christmas classic that has just celebrated its 25th birthday. Home Alone manages to capture lightning in a bottle, featuring an astonishing script from John Hughes, one of the best directors of children in the business, Chris Columbus, and a perfect score from the master John Williams, not to mention wonderful performances from some brilliant comedic performers and a 10 year-old Macaulay Culkin at his impish best.
