A Christmas Carol
I recently reviewed Disney’s A Christmas Carol for Movie Marker:
Robert Zemeckis revisits Dickens’ classic Christmas tale of paranormal redemption complete with state of the art 3D and motion capture technology.
This supernatural yuletide tale was designed by Dickens to promote the dwindling spirit of Christmas back into a society that he felt had lost its sense of caring for ones fellow man. The was a rapidly expanding urban poor in Britain in the mid 19th Century and the Government’s answer was to build the brutal poor houses which merely prolonged the cycle of misery for many. Dickens’ wished to encourage those more well off to help the poor and not simply leave them to rot in London’s slums.
