    The Man Who Invented Christmas


    A nice Shakespeare in Love-style take on Dickens writing A Christmas Carol. It is handsomely produced considering it was an Ireland-Canada co-production and I suspect on the lower budget side.

    Awards prospects are dim, although the script is very witty.

    Roman J. Israel, Esq.


    The first half of this movie is one of the best movies of the year. The ending doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the set-up, but I love the writing and I love how Denzel can just embody a new iconic character like he’s eating breakfast in the morning. The man makes it look easy.
