Christopher Plummer is mind-blowing. It’s a great film.” – Mike Sargent, “The unforgettable films of 2017,” PBS NewsHour
The magical journey that led to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge (the indomitable Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and all the classic characters from A Christmas Carol, receives an elegantly appointed update courtesy of executive producer (Miami’s own) Mitchell Kaplan. Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day), The Man Who Invented Christmas shows how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens, the beast in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast) mixed real-life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.

Miami Families Need Help for the Holidays — Here’s Where to Donate
Miami New Times – ALEXI C. CARDONA
In Miami-Dade County, food-pantry lines are long, evictions loom, and families are shouldering the challenges of job loss and food insecurity. Scores of nonprofits are putting in overtime to feed, clothe, house, and otherwise provide for people whose lives have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. Organizations like Feeding South Florida, the area’s largest food bank; and Big Brothers Big Sisters, a legacy youth mentorship program; express nothing but gratitude for Miami’s generosity and support.
