Our Score
A Christmas Carol gets a makeover in this radical rethink of Dickens's classic tale. Susan Lucci takes the title role as the tunnel-visioned head of an exclusive department store who gets her comeuppance at the hands of the most stylish Christmas spirits you'll ever see. The script is a tad too clever at times, but there are some astute comments on our consumerist times that make you wonder just how far we've come since the bleak midwinters of the Victorian era. Wendy Crewson who played Harrison Ford's wife in Air Force One leads the engaging supporting cast.


A high-flying but mean-hearted female department store executive is brought back down to earth with a bump by three ghosts determined to put a smile on her face in preparation for the Christmas season's celebrations. Festive drama based on the Dickens' tale, starring Susan Lucci, Wendy Crewson, Ron Lea, Jeffrey DeMunn and Molly Parker.
