A Christmas Carol has become a staple for my family during the Christmas season. It just isn’t Christmas without this treasured tale in some form or other. So watching a film about how it came to be really was a wonderful addition to the holiday.
I don’t recall ever seeing a trailer. However, 2017 was the year I discovered Dan Stevens. So when the poster arrived promoting Stevens as Dickens creating the classic story I just knew I’d have to see it. It’s taken me a little while to get around to it, but I’m not disappointed.
It’s fun to see how this book came to life. What was inspired by the world around him and what came to be from the characters coming to life in his mind. How he had to fight to get the book published the way he wanted, and how he struggled to get it written in the first place. Stevens really did an amazing job. I wouldn’t have this movie be any other way.
I definitely recommend this one!
