    Wonderful adaptation / modernization of Dicken’s “Christmas Carol”.

    Guillame stars in AND directs this version ~ and though some of the scenes are added, they are done so in such a way as to be seamlessly integrated. Dickens himself could not have written the additions any better!

    One to see if you can!!!

    5 stars all day long!!!
