October 1843. Charles Dickens was broke and distressed. Despite early success, his last three books had failed. Rejected by his publishers, he set out to write and self-publish a book he hoped would keep his family afloat. This is the story of the six fever-pitched weeks in which Dickens created A Christmas Carol, the masterpiece that changed the holiday into the merry family event we know today.

Starring Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer and Jonathan Pryce, the film is released November 22 in the U.S. and December 1 in the UK.
