Superb telling of the classic story


An American Christmas Carol is a real treat! Henry Winkler is amazing in the lead role, and the cold winter setting adds to the mood. I like that the story gives more background about Mr. Slade, and getting invested in the character really pays off when he has his ultimate change of heart. The last 10–15 minutes are perfect. Grab a tissue.
