A CHRIST­MAS CAROL (2009)

Starpics, 6.30pm

★★★★ A sur­pris­ingly faith­ful (and of­ten, archly scary) adap­ta­tion of the clas­sic novel by Charles Dick­ens. Jim Car­rey plays that mean old skin­flint, Ebenezer Scrooge, kid­napped by a tri­fecta of spec­tres to teach him the er­ror of his ways. An­i­mated in the eerie ‘‘mo­tion­cap­ture’’ style, its vis­ual power im­presses. Might be too much for chil­dren un­der 10, but a real gift for ev­ery­one else. LP
