Greystones Film Club: Elf @ Whale Theatre

Elf (USA/PG/97mins) Friday December 20th 4.30pm [doors 4pm] The Greystones Film Club have been running this timeless 2003 comedy for quite a few years now, and it never fails to delight. And Will Ferrell has rarely been better as unlikely elf Buddy, taking that long walk from the North Pole in order to find his birth father. Who, being James Caan, is firmly on the naughty list.

Managing to be both irreverent and reverent, for all its silliness and sublime slapstick, Elf is a sentimental film at heart, with the seering finale a firm reminder that Santa is real. Once you believe.
