‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’ Film Review: Scrooge’s Origin Story Is a Bit of a Humbug

6 hours ago

The Man Who Invented Christmas” needed to accomplish two tasks: Tell the story of how Charles Dickens created the beloved classic “A Christmas Carol,” and in turn illustrate how the story’s popularity helped turn December 25 into a cultural behemoth.
