So close to the book that you’d swear it was made with Dickens’ input.
This take on the Christmas Carol is shockingly well done (shockingly because I’ve not seen it before) and I was taken aback by how faithful to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol it is. This movie goes best for beat and includes segments that few adaptations include like the unfortunate Want and Ignorance.
What makes it really shine is George C. Scott’s take on Ebeneezer Scrooge. He portrays Scrooge in a way that is very close to the original miser. The ghosts are phenomenally well done as well.
