A retelling of the classic Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, miser extraordinaire. He is held accountable for his dastardly ways during night-time visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and future.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
The only fault is muppet legs, otherwise exquisite. Hard to pull off meta-jokes without being obnoxious. So tender and snarky!
One of those films I liked as a child that I actually admire all the more the older I get!
And I don't even like Dickens!
Despite it being just a tiny bit anti-climactic (Caine's Scrooge softens just a bit too easily, a bit too early), this is one of my favorite Christmas movies. I especially enjoy the music and set pieces.
