Synopsis

Charles Dickens' classic tale of a penny-pinching money counter realising the joyless error of his ways is rendered beautifully for the big screen in stunning CGI. Jim Carrey voices the wizened Yuletide miser Scrooge while Gary Oldman is both his beleaguered clerk Bob Cratchit and Scrooge's deceased partner Jacob Marley. Director Robert Zemeckis faithfully adapts the 1843 novella utilising stunning computer technology that serves the story rather than overwhelming it. A visual Christmas banquet, its stark rendering of the ghosts haunting the old meanie may be a bit much for younger children.
