Bring your lunch, buy some homemade goodies (to benefit FOLLI), and join us for a holiday movie, followed by commentary and discussion. We’ve all seen at least one version of Dickens’ timeless novella, but how true are they to the original story—and what inspired Dickens to write it? We will review the story behind the story, and then we’ll view arguably the best film version: the 1951 film starring Alastair Sim. After the movie, we’ll discuss how various movie versions differ from the book.
