Reviews:
"[A] jaunty, amusing patchwork of truths, half-truths and pure fiction that cleverly combine to recount the story of the whirlwind creation of Charles Dickens’ famed novella 'A Christmas Carol.'" - 11/21/2017 Los Angeles Times


"Brightly lit and anchored by Mr. Stevens’s infectious, live-wire performance..." - 11/21/2017 New York Times


"Plummer is one of those actors who seems virtually incapable of turning in a bad performance, but his work here is really strong. Scrooge is, of course, a role that seems tailor-made for hamming it up, but Plummer instead takes a quieter and more delicate approach..." - 11/22/2017 RogerEbert.com


"God has blessed us, every one, with Dan Stevens, who inhabits the character of Dickens beautifully.....Stevens’s beguiling blue eyes can signal, in a blink, a cavalcade of emotions." - 11/20/2017 Washington Post


"[A] warm and welcome sight you are....It’s filled with so many theatrical flourishes and fantastical touches, one can envision this material as a work for the stage, or even an animated film." - 11/22/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "There is a perky, winking lightness of touch for most of the film which in truth makes it largely palatable. It’s just a bit of festive cheer..." - 11/29/2017 Empire
