Synopsis


A Christmas Carol
Patrick Stewart stars as Ebeneezer Scrooge in this made-for-TV adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic holiday fable. Scrooge is a skinflint businessman who loathes the Christmas season and begrudges having to give time off to his best employee, Bob Cratchit (Richard E. Grant). On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his late friend and partner, Jacob Marley (Bernard Lloyd), who in the afterlife has come to see the error of his ways. Marley arranges for Scrooge to be visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past (Joel Grey), Christmas Present (Desmond Barrit), and Christmas Yet to Come (Tim Potter) in hopes of teaching Scrooge of the importance of embracing the joy of the holiday season. A Christmas Carol was produced for the TNT cable television network. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    One of our favorite versions of the Christmas Carol. Saw it on TV when it was on there, and decided we wanted to own a copy. And did I mention Patrick Stewart is in it? Love that guy!

    Of all the versions made, I believe this is the best. Patrick Stewart makes an excellent Scrooge. The supporting cast is outstanding and the scenery is true to the time period.

    Interesting coverage of parts not covered in the other versions. Patrick Stewart was great especially when he learned to laugh again. Kind of hard to find DVD, but well worth it.
