A Christmas Carol is an american movie in 3D released in 2009, realized by Robert Zemeckis & produced by Walt Disney Pictures.
It’s one of the numerous adaptation of A Christmas Carol, a english novela wrote by Charles Dickens in 1843. The history takes place during the Christmas season, the main character is an old man very stingy and misanthrope named Ebenezer Scrooge, who at the beginning of the movie, is an unsympathetic character. Scrooge is the opposite of generosity, he doesn’t know charity, has a heart of stone, and most of all: he HATE Christmas!
To make him aware of his behavior, three ghosts come to visit him during Christmas Eve: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. The third Spirit take Scrooge to a gloomy walk to Bob Cratchit’s house (the underpaid clerk of Scrooge, and the symbol of the poor working conditions and especially long working hours. ) where the family cry the little Tiny who just died because the family was too poor. Scrooge realize that the child is dead because of him, but then, the Spirit leads him to a cemetery where he discovered his own grave with, written in large black letters, the name « EBENEZER SCROOGE« .
Scrooge weeps over his own grave, beg the spirit for a chance to change his ways, before Christmas morning. At the end, the old man wakes up on Christmas morning, he changed his behavior and becamed a model of generosity and kindness.
I really love this novela, because it can be creepy & wonderful at the same time, and the moral is just beautiful.
