This is a fanciful movie about how Charles Dickens may have been inspired to write his most famous work,  A Christmas Carol.  It reminded me of Shakespeare In Love a bit because it is a “what if” on how they came up with their greatest works.  Christopher Plummer plays the fictitious Scrooge and has the best scene when he and Dickens are arguing on how to go forward in the story. So it is a very creative way to relay what a character is thinking which is always a difficult concept to portray on film.

Although Hollywood can still get their agenda into period pieces this film did not attempt to end western civilization in anyway! (Luckily period pieces tend to deal with the politics of the time they are portraying and not present day concerns.)  So happily this was an agenda free hour and 44 minutes of cinema.

 

Note: I looked up whether the movie stayed historically correct and it turns out it did!
