BFI 10 Great indie Christmas Films

BFI 10 Great Indie Christmas Films, Article by Christina Newland, updated on December 7, 2020

Metropolitan is on the list, which is no surprise. If you’re a Whit Stillman fan, the Bill Forsyth’s Comfort and Joy might be to your liking. Stillman once said that Forsyth’s That Sinking Feeling was a film he would save in an impending apocalypse.

Metropolitan is streaming on The Criterion Channel, Showtime, etc. The hard to find (in the US) Comfort and Joy is finally streaming on Hoopla and the BFI Player in the UK. You can also buy physical copies of these films, but the latter is only on PAL at this point.
