A Christmas Carol Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0 from 1 reviews

A fine retelling of the classic tale about a penny-pinching holiday hater who learns appreciation of Christmas following a frightful, revealing evening with supernatural visitors. Perhaps the best rendering of the Dickens classic. "And God bless Tiny Tim!"

A Christmas Carol

Nicholle

A Christmas Carol is a movie that is always played around Christmas time. I don't know one person who doesn't know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge. Scrooge is a very pessimistic person and doesn't really like people. One night, three ghosts come visit him and show him what Christmas is really about, help him see what people go through, and show him that he needs to be kind to everyone. All of this seems to start off in a dream but he thinks it is very real. This movie is a tradition for the holiday.
