Based on the famous novel by Charles Dickens, Scrooge is one old time classic you should not be missing this Holiday season.
It’s main character, Ebenezer Scrooge is a proverbial Victorian miser going about his business, all while excelling at exploiting his clients and employees. He has a deep dislike towards the Christmas season and does not care about the happiness of the rich and poor, old and young, he detests the celebrations and the decorations, until a certain unplanned visit, that is.
The story takes a turn in the film when Scrooge is visited by 3 ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future showing him varied scenarios of his own life. By taking him on this out of the ordinary journey, the ghosts place a big emphasis on his misdeeds and what a change in his behavior could bring into the lives of people closest to him. Like the novel, the film follows the same path, and leads the audience through an emotional journey through self-discovery.
The sudden change of attitude in Scrooge is shocking to his neighbors with many simply thinking he has lost his mind, especially when he starts to value his employee Bob Cratchit (a person who genuinely loves him) and bonds with his nephew Fred over Christmas supper. This movie is a must watch for the whole family to help us remember and appreciate what the true meaning of Christmas is.
