Synopsis

There have been dozens of adaptations of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol but this atmospheric, black-and-white version is one of the best. Great Scottish actor Alistair Sim stars as the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge; an uncaring and tight fisted company boss who places profit above his workers, his family and especially above Christmas. On Christmas Eve Scrooge is visited by a series of spooky ghosts that are determined to make him see the error of his ways. The spirits in this version are frequently scary enough to convince us that the grumpy old man may indeed be persuaded to change but the film’s real strength lies in Sim’s energetic performance, which brilliant captures Scrooge’s dramatic and touching transformation.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
