5 Star Christmas

Airs on: Friday, 7 December

On an official trip to Budapest, the Italian prime minister arranges a foolproof Christmas-time tryst with his lover (who also happens to be his political rival). Follow this absurd dark comedy as the couple try to keep the scandal under wraps, and away from their spouses and nosy paparazzi.

Nailed it! Holiday!

Airs on: Friday, 7 December

Watching incredibly talented people cook is always good entertainment, but the struggling amateur bakers in “Nailed It!” have really stolen our hearts. Its holiday episode features impossible instructions and (dare we say it?) delightfully sad looking desserts.

Plan Coeur (The Hook Up Plan)

Airs on: Friday, 7 December

We all know Netflix has been killing it with original rom-coms and this French show looks like it’s going to keep the ball rolling. When Elsa gets stuck on her ex, her best friends secretly hire a male escort to help her move on, but what will they do when their “plan coeur” (hook up plan) works just a little too well?

Airs on: Friday, 14 December

In this beautiful love letter to the woman who raised him, Alfonso Cuarón draws on his childhood to create a portrait of 1970s Mexico City. The film follows a young domestic worker for a middle-class family in the Roma neighbourhood and explores themes of domestic strife and social hierarchy. Heavy and artful, the film is not to be missed – it’s already been selected as the Mexican entry for the Best Foreign Language film at next year’s Oscars!
