Our Score
In this racially updated, gender-bending retelling of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, Emmy Award winner Cicely Tyson stars as modern-day banker and miser, Ebenita Scrooge. The plot's the same, though, with Scrooge being visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future so she can learn valuable life lessons and mend her greedy ways. Merry Christmas, one and all! Sadly, this picture doesn't have the makings of a holiday classic: Tyson doesn't seem particularly inspired, while this uneven modern version wanders aimlessly from the spirit of the original.


A mean-spirited banker is persuaded to change her ways when she is visited by a series of ghosts on Christmas eve. Festive fantasy inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, with Cicely Tyson and Katherine Helmond.
