Stan’s December Titles Are an Ode to an Aussie Christmas


Being an Australian service, it’s no wonder that Stan is honouring Australia the best way they know how — with a sunburnt Christmas.

For their December offering, the streaming service is offering up a brand new festive movie directed by Christiaan Van Vuuren (Bondi Hipsters, The Other Guy).

A Sunburnt Christmas is a wild, hilarious and heartfelt story about a single mum and her kids doing it tough on their outback farm until a runaway criminal dressed as Santa Claus crashes into their property and their lives.

In the lead role as Daryl the kindly crim, Daniel Henshall (Snowtown, Stan Original Series Bloom, Acute Misfortune) is mistaken for the real Santa by the young and fearless Daisy, played by incredible new talent Lena Nankivell.

Following this release is another Stan original — Dom and Adrian 2020, from the minds of Nick Boshier and Van Vuuren.

Premiering on Sunday, December 13, the Stan original is a mockumentary special chronicling the duo’s journey through the garbage fire that is 2020.
