Embark on a magical journey as we go back in time to see how Charles Dickens, creates the characters Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and more from A Christmas Carol.
Suffering from the failure of his last three books, he has to write and self-publish a new work that will revive his career – and if he fails again, it could mean that he would never be able to write again. The film spans the course of the six weeks he took to create the novel A Christmas Carol, and things don’t go according to plan as the characters in his books don’t quite listen to their author.
Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day), this flick shows how Dickens mixed real life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure these classic characters, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.
A Christmas Carol features English actor Dan Stevens in the iconic role of Charles, Christopher Plummer and Jonathan Pryce, to name a few.
The Man Who Invented Christmas opens in cinemas on November 30 and is rated PG.
Toggle is giving away 15 pairs of tickets to the preview screening of The Man Who Invented Christmas, courtesy of Shaw Organisation.
