The Man Who Invented Christmas

2017 Biography

Before Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) ever uttered his first "humbug," there was just a struggling author in need of a good story. Charles Dickens (Stevens) has had his last few books flop, his publisher has lost confidence in his ability to spin a good yarn and his funds are drying up. When he’s struck by a sudden inspiration to write a tale of ghostly visitors on Christmas Eve, the characters seem to spring to life before him as he struggles to get the story penned before his publisher gives up on him once and for all.
