Emily The Little Match Girl (U)

Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen Fairytale ‘The Little Match Girl’, with the voices of David Bradley (The World’s End, Hot Fuzz and Harry Potter) & Lesley Joseph (Birds of a Feather and Night & Day)

After the sudden death of her Grandmother, Emily is taken to the local match factory by the towns corrupt Constable. Here, Harry ‘The match maker’ and his wife Mary, exploit the children to sell their matches in exchange for lodgings and a warm meal.

On Christmas Eve, Emily struggles to sell enough matches to keep Harry and Mary happy; and what money she has made is lost in a drain. Deciding to stay out, to avoid any punishment, Emily strikes a match to keep warm. The matches take her on a magical journey, eventually reuniting her with her Grandmother.

In the meantime, Emily’s new friend Anna decides to leave the match factory in the middle of the night in search of Emily. On her journey she teams up with Richard, a well-to-do young gentleman who has ambitions to help the children after learning of their treatment.

Will they succeed?

Will Harry and Mary get away with their business endeavour and will the other children be saved?

All will be revealed in ‘Emily, the little match girl’
