U Certificate


Our Score
The breadth of Charles Dickens's imagination and the clarity of his characterisation seem to lend themselves to animation. This Australian adaptation contains most of the richness of its source, though wraps it up in a form that enables children to be introduced to great literature without being swamped, and there's enough simple pleasure in the tale to keep adults entertained, too.


Miser Ebenezer Scrooge is given a Christmas Eve to remember when a quartet of ghosts - his dead business partner and the spirits of Christmases past, present and future - turn up determined to cure him of his money-grubbing ways. Adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic, starring George C Scott, Nigel Davenport, Frank Finlay, Angela Pleasence, David Warner, Edward Woodward and Susannah York.
