In 1843, Charles Dickens was a struggling literary rock star. After his publishers rejected his pitch for “A Christmas Carol”, Dickens declared he would publish it himself. Using real-life inspiration and a vivid imagination, author Dickens brings Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and other classic characters to life, changing Christmas into the celebration we know today.
A family fun experience about the most iconic Christmas story ever written and the genius behind its creation.
Directed by esteemed Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Spooks), The Man Who Invented Christmas stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast) as the iconic Charles Dickens.
