The Man Who Invented Christmas

Last edited Tue Nov 28, 2017, 07:41 PM - Edit history (1)

The movie based on the Les Standiford book was released today. Great book, will have to make time to see the film.

From wiki:

In October 1843, Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) was suffering from the failure of his last three books. Rejected by his publishers, he set out to write and self-publish a book he hoped would keep his family afloat and revive his career. The film tells the story of the six fever-pitched weeks in which Dickens created A Christmas Carol. The film takes audiences inside the magical process that brought to life Ebenezer Scrooge (Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and others, changing the Christian holiday into the merry family event we know today as Christmas.


Also stars Jonathan Pryce as Dickens's father, the inspiration for Scrooge.

5. I saw it over the weekend.

It is a good, but perhaps not great, movie. If you know nothing about Dickens or the story of A Christmas Carol (or even little about Victorian England), it may be a bit confusing.

But my family and I enjoyed it, and I can see it becoming a Christmas tradition on television.


(FYI, it's Jonathan Pryce, not Bryce!)
