The Man Who Invented Christmas

1h 45m
Drama, History, Comedy, Family
In 1843, despite the fact that Dickens is a successful writer, the failure of his latest book puts his career at a crossroads, until the moment when, struggling with inspiration and confronting reality with his childhood memories, a new character is born in the depths of his troubled mind; an old, lonely, embittered man, so vivid, so human, that a whole world grows around him, a story so inspiring that changed the meaning of Christmas forever.

An interesting film about the brainstorming behind writing Scrooge. With brilliant work by Dan Stevens (Beauty & the Beast) as Charles Dickens. While Christopher Plummer is just as good as his creation Scrooge, himself.

I enjoyed this film. It was a lovely insight to see how Charles may have came up with his characters and plot. It was very heartwarming and a lovely addition to my Christmas movies.

Dan Stevens is a charming and charasmatic presence as Charles Dickens in The Man Who Invented Christmas but he is given a tough task, he has to portray a man in the midst of the creative process and a creative process that is blocked. In real life this is staring at a wall for most of us and doing l More
