October, 1843. Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) is struggling after a run of flops have left him both financially strapped and bereft of ideas. He’s distracted from his wife and children, irritated by his leech of a father and grumpy with his best friend and advocate John Foster (Justin Edwards). Yet the lively streets of London are a place where inspiration can strike in any moment, and Dickens has an idea to write a book set at Christmas about an unloved miser. This premise doesn’t do enough to excite his publishers, so Dickens goes it alone, a decision which plunges him into more debt and uncertainty. And that’s before he meets the characters who will inhabit his definitive work. The Man Who Invented Christmas is dynamic festive fare, propelled along by a sparkling comic performance from Stevens, and features an impressive supporting cast that includes Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce and Simon Callow.
