What's happening on screen?
This movie is definitely an old favourite for lots of people – and quickly becomes a new favourite if you’re seeing it for the first time. It’s a heartwarming and hilarious Christmas classic. When 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is accidentally left behind when his family goes on holiday for Christmas, he revels in his newfound freedom. However, his joy is short-lived when he discovers that two bumbling burglars, Harry and Marv (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern), plan to rob his home. Kevin devises a series of ingenious traps to defend his house, turning it into a booby-trapped fortress. The film is a delightful blend of slapstick humor and heartwarming moments as Kevin learns the importance of family and the true meaning of Christmas.
Haven’t I seen that cast before?
Macaulay Culkin was one of those child actors from the 90’s that appeared in loads of hits. Remember Ritchie Rich?! The fun and bubbly John Candy appears in this one too. Macaulay Culkin’s brother – Kieran – plays one of the kids in this… you might recognise him now as Roman in Succession. And who could forget Catherine O’Hara, playing Kevin’s mother, who lots of us remember from films like Beetlejuice and is now being iconic all over again in Schitt’s Creek.
