A Christmas Carol



Miser Ebenezer Scrooge is awakened on Christmas Eve by spirits who reveal to him his own miserable existence, what opportunities he wasted in his youth, his current cruelties, and the dire fate that awaits him if he does not change his ways. Scrooge is faced with his own story of growing bitterness and meanness, and must decide what his own future will hold: death or redemption.

Reviews
2009-11-10 : James Berardinelli
The motion capture animation is top-notch and it’s hard not to be impressed with what Robert Zemeckis has wrought, even if there’s the occasional sense he’s pandering to an audience that can’t get through a 90 minute story without a few yuks and a chase.
2009-11-06 : Dana Stevens
How they made it into this Disney adaptation unprettified is a Christmas miracle in itself.
2009-11-06 : Amy Biancolli
Zemeckis’ film preserves much of Dickens’ original dialogue and detail while amplifying the utter ethereal strangeness of the ghosts.
