The Man Who Invented Christmas

In 1843, Dickens was a literary rock star, but struggling financially after the slow sales of his previous novel, Martin Chuzzlewit. Seized with the vision of a story that would fire the hearts of humanity, Dickens pitched his publishers A Christmas Carol, but they passed. Desperate, Dickens declared he would publish it himself. Slipping into the world of his novel, he spent the next six weeks laughing and arguing with his characters, acting out scenes like a madman on the streets of London for hours on end. With a powerful performance from Dan Stevens, THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS is a film for all ages about the most iconic Christmas story ever written and the genius behind it. The film also stars Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music) as Ebenezer Scrooge and Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) as John Dickens.

Reviews

Alonso Duralde
2018/03/09

As a portrait of an author on the verge of a breakthrough, this is a run-of-the-mill, occasionally clumsy biopic; as for contextualizing Christmas, it never explains how it functioned before Dickens and only briefly mentions how it changed after him.

[Offers] enough enjoyable Masterpiece Theater-style moments to entice Anglophiles and those who can never get enough of Ebenezer Scrooge.

Peter Debruge

[Reveals] the equivalently satisfying story of how the English author conceived his beloved yuletide novella - while offering a chance for a splendidly cast Christopher Plummer to play Ebenezer Scrooge in the process.

Director Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) maintains an oppressively cutesy tone-the film is as sweet and heavy as egg nog.

Brightly lit and anchored by Mr. Stevens s infectious, live-wire performance, the film ... proceeds like a television holiday special, designed to distract children while winking at their parents.
