As midnight strikes, as warned by Marley (Stephen Graham), Scrooge (Guy Pearce) is visited by the Spirit of Christmas Past (Andy Serkis).

He takes Scrooge on a deeply personal journey, exposing his darkest childhood memories, his cut-throat business manner, his isolation and manipulation of those around him, including The Cratchits.

An original take on Dickens’s iconic ghost story by Steven Knight (Taboo, Peaky Blinders). A Christmas Carol is a spine-tingling immersion into Scrooge’s dark night of the soul.
