Christmas Ghosts

I just came back from watching A Christmas Carol movie, an amazing 3D animation, featuring Jim Carrey, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, among others.

A Christmas Carol is a great story, based on the novel by Charles Dickens, about an old miser who is haunted by ghosts who scare him until he decides to change his ways and become charitable and social. It breaches some important matters, like not giving too much importance to possessions, spending some time doing good for others, enjoy life, so it's worth watching.

Jim Carrey, who plays the main character, the miser Scrooge, plus other seven characters, told the Indie London site: “Generally, what I think about most people is that we walk around believing a lie about ourselves from a very early age. Scrooge’s lie is that he wasn’t worth loving. And so he couldn’t afford to believe in love because he didn’t get it.

“So, that’s a wonderful place to start. I also wanted him to appear to be irredeemable, which is a difficult task after you’ve seen this story so many times. I think we got there. But playing all the different characters was such a huge challenge and it’s really important to me, personally, that people in the UK enjoy this beautiful story again, which is theirs.” [1]

Go see it, if you haven't yet! Below is a couple of captures from the trailer and the trailer itself:
