Based on a novel by none other than the great Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol revolves around the story of Ebenezer Scrooge in 1843.

He had run the business all on his own for the past 7 years after the tragic passing of his partner, Jacob Marley. As Scrooge falls into the Christmas mood slump while everyone around him celebrates, he is visited by Marley’s ghost who asks him to repent his ways or he would be condemned in the afterlife.

For the following three days, Scrooge meets the three spirits of Christmas – one each from the past, the present, and the future. Will these meetings shape the course of Scrooge’s life? Enjoy this movie and its light comedy and fantasy notes with Patrick Stewart, Richard Grant, Saskia Reeves, and Bernard Lloyd as part of the wonderful cast.
