Synopsis

Charles Dickens's classic story - which some historians have even claimed invented our modern idea of what Christmas is - has been filmed many times. Here, X-Men star and respected theatre actor Patrick Stewart attempts to get away from some of the cliches as the notorious Scrooge, and the film tries to make Victorian England look tough, rather than Christmas-card cute. The result is a version of the story that is a little less fun than some, but closer to the book.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
