The Man Who Invented Christmas doesn't bring a lot to the table. The story that it tells simply isn't engaging enough, despite the best efforts of Plummer, Stevens and company to liven it up.

Dan Stevens incarnates a Dickens prone to pyrotechnics gestures to which the reality unfolds before his eyes as incessant buffet free of stimuli. [Full Review in Spanish]

By focusing on Charles Dickens himself, the filmmakers find a fitting new way to bring a well-known story to the big screen.

Beautiful and darkly festive. Dan Stevens' Dickens is prone to bah humbug, with six weeks to write a Christmas classic. Victorian London is bustling and clean; Plummer's Scrooge dour and mocking; gratifyingly, ordinary people are assumed to be well-read.

Though not as full of fantasy and pathos as the original story of A Christmas Carol, Dickens's personal journey makes for a charming Christmas movie.

A warm PG-rated feature for families with older kids who won't grow restless with its adult preoccupations and leisurely pace.

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.
December 27, 2017
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.
