| Groundbreaking!
FX's new version of A Christmas Carol is bleak...and dark, and brilliant. It is the very first movie to include a vital scene Dickens included in his tale that no other movie version has ever depicted: young Scrooge's hallucinations of Ali Baba at the boarding school. This scene is critical in understanding how desperate the abandoned boy had become due to his childhood abuse...and how it affected him into his dysfunctional adulthood. Many people seem to be upset at the liberties the movie takes in telling the story, but all versions have done this. Many movie versions of ACC include that Scrooge's mother died giving birth to him, thus fueling his father's anger toward him. Not true...this is NOT a part of the original story. In terms of being true to the spirit of what Dickens wanted to convey, the transformation of Scrooge in this story is very accurate. It is A Christmas Carol for the 21st Century. Tough and gritty, but excellent.
