The Man Who Invented Christmas

PG History

How Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol and created a tradition. 

Dan Stevens stars as Charles Dickens in this incredible and imaginative true story about the creation of one of the most famous books of all time, A Christmas Carol.

Facing pressure upon pressure with looming debt, a feckless father (Jonathon Pryce) and recent critical failures, Charles Dickens confronts his past and uses real-life inspiration and a vivid imagination to conjure up fantastic characters including Ebenezer Scrooge (played by screen legend Christopher Plummer) and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future – not to mention the immortal words, “Bah Humbug!”

The result was his now classic Christmas tale – and the revival of the holiday of Christmas itself.


"Dan Stevens... inhabits the character of Dickens beautifully." Washington Post

"... Plummer is such a sly, comic delight as Scrooge..." The Hollywood Reporter
