Blu-ray Review: The Man Who Invented Christmas

April 3, 2018

By John Corrado

Based on the true story of how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) wrote and published his beloved tale A Christmas Carol in a matter of weeks, helped along by visions of Ebenezer Scrooge (Christopher Plummer) and his other characters, The Man Who Invented Christmas finds the sweet spot between being a biopic and a new take on the classic story.  The film is now available on Blu-ray.

As someone who has always loved the story of A Christmas Carol, I really enjoyed The Man Who Invented Christmas, and it deserves to find more of an audience on Blu-ray.  This is a playful and well acted film that provides an inventive look at the writing process, and I already look forward to watching it again around the holidays.  For more on the film itself, you can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray also includes the short featurette The Story Behind The Man Who Invented Christmas.

The Man Who Invented Christmas is an Elevation Pictures release.  It’s 104 minutes and rated PG.
