A Christmas Carol (1999) (DVD)


Charles Dickens' timeless classic, A Christmas Carol, is a story about hope, holiday cheer and the uplifting power of spirit.

Ebenezer Scrooge (Patrick Stewart) has just buried his longtime friend and business partner, Jacob Marley on Christmas Eve in 1843. This tragedy makes Scrooge a negative person for the next seven years, always "bah-humbuging" and yelling at the people closest to him.

On Christmas Eve, Scrooge finds himself alone in his office. He hears the rattling sees before him, the ghost of Jacob Marley, who tells him three other ghosts will visit him that night. Marley warns Scrooge that the suffering he causes others, he will have to repay even in death and warns him that there's only one chance to escape that fate.
