The Man Who Invented Christmas

Description
It takes places in 1843 in London when author Charles Dickens finds himself in financial trouble after writing three unsuccessful novels in a row. Desperate for a hit, Dickens relies on real-life inspiration and his vivid imagination to bring Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and other classic characters to life in 'A Christmas Carol,' forever changing the holiday season into the celebration known today.

There's a somewhat contrived jauntiness to this blending of fact and fiction that may leave cynical audiences annoyed. But for those who leave their bah-humbug attitudes at home, it's a wonderfully entertaining take on a classic.

Just like Stevens as Dickens, The Man Who Invented Christmas is immensely likeable, and undoubtedly will having you leaving the theatre feeling more festive than when you entered.

Given the number of successful adaptations of Dickens' work, what is this film trying to add that hasn't already been achieved?

Nothing against Stevens, but much of the role could have been performed by a cocker spaniel.

The film's lighthearted tone imagines the author as a sort of literary Forrest Gump, lucking his way into overhearing brilliant dialogue and accidentally crossing paths with people who inspire his most beloved work.

Mainly, the fancy at the centre of The Man Who Invented Christmas provides an unusually kinetic literary biography as the writer races against the clock to master the voices of his obstreperous characters in time for the 25th.

It pushes its hero off his pedestal but delivers him -- like Tom Hulce's Mozart in Amadeus -- to a much better place, the earthy company of fellow citizens who dream of being inspired.

It's filled with so many theatrical flourishes and fantastical touches, one can envision this material as a work for the stage, or even an animated film.
