Christmastime is a time filled with magic and joy. A time that we all find the magic within ourselves and others. How did that begin? Was it the birth of a king? Was it a pagan ritual? Or, was it something else entirely? This dares to explore the mind of Charles Dickens. You may be thinking, whoa… wait… but stay with me, it’ll all make sense soon. Charles Dickens was/is a well known author. His stories inspired many all over the world. When he finds himself blocked (commonly known as writers block), he must find a new inspiration. Once he finds what it is, he’ll set a seemingly impossible goal. Giving himself a mere matter of weeks to write, print, and distribute this new story. As he delves deeper into the story and the characters, we get to see a side of him that will leave you wondering if he was either absolutely magnificent or absolutely mad. Here we follow him through the process, seeing more of him than many ever might have known. In doing so, he helps us to experience Christmas like never before. Fans of the traditional “A Christmas Carol” will be astounded as to the “making of” of sorts. Those who aren’t the biggest holiday or Dickens fans might want to wait. A bit slow at times, this intricate tale is a poignant portrayal of a timeless tale and how it came to be.
