The Man Who Invented Christmas

Dove Approved for All Ages

For as well known as is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, The Man Who Invented Christmas is an entirely new perspective on the Charles Dickens we mostly pictured in our minds as a stately older man. Dan Stevens brings this intriguing and marvelous character to life in a way we’ve probably not [...]
