A Christmas Carol
This is a film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ 1843 story of the same name. It’s the timeless tale of an old miser who must face the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come. Will Ebenezer Scrooge learn of self-redemption?
It’s the time of the year when we regurgitate the same little rituals, and the retelling of Charles Dickens’s 1843 “A Christmas Carol” is one of them.
Of course the interpretations has been done many times over, and although the movie adds nothing to the story, well it was a refreshing interpretation, and much more darker to my liking.
You’ve been warned if you’re bringing your kids as some scenes are frightening and quite often the film is dark-toned.
The director Robert Zemeckis follows the storyline of the book very closely, and Jim Carrey voicing as Scrooge as well as the other characters did an excellent job.
Disney’s animation is top-notch as usual, and I recommend you to see it in 3D if you have the choice.
This is a story of redemption, a story of Scrooge’s transformation to a better man where the old selfish bitter Scrooge was visited by the spirit of Christmas Past, Christmas present and Christmas Yet to come, each encounter prove to be a life lesson.
Overall you’ll never get bored of the movie, of course if it’s seen annually of course. The story of Ebenezer Scrooge whatever the adaptation has always been an inspiration to me, and it will for you too.
