A Christmas Carol and Its Adaptations

A Christmas Carol and Its Adaptations

Published by McFarland 2016

Over 150 years after its original composition, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol continues to delight readers. The figure of Ebenezer Scrooge has become a cultural icon, and Tiny Tim's "God Bless Us Every One" is as familiar as "Merry Christmas." It is not surprising that Dickens' "ghostly little book," as he called it, has proved popular with playwrights and screenwriters. In everything from elegant literary treatments to animated musicals, the role of Scrooge has been essayed by actors from George C. Scott to Mr. Magoo. This critical account of the story's history and its various adaptations examines first the original writing of the story, including its political, economic, and historical context. The major interpretations are analyzed within their various media: stage, magic...


TIFF 2016: “In the Radiant City,” “Katie Says Goodbye,” “City of Tiny Lights,” “Tramps”

We’re always coming home or leaving home, and two films at TIFF this year were about men coming to terms with their dark pasts, while two more were about young women looking to leave their equally dark present situations. The director of two of the best films of 2016, Jeff Nichols , produces “In the Radiant City,” a feature film debut for co-writer/director Rachel Lambert that falls into that “promising but flawed” category we so often see at festivals. Andrew Yurley (Michael Abbott Jr. ) has come home for the first time in years. Now that his brother’s case is coming up again, he’s back in town, but his sister Laura ( Marin Ireland ) literally can’t even handle the sight of him, vomiting after seeing him in the store in which she works. Laura’s daughter Beth ( Madisen Beaty ) makes contact with Andrew—although he doesn’t know that she’s his niece—while Andrew’s mother Susan ( Celia Weston ) needs a lot of assistance due to poor health. What exactly Andrew’s brother did so many years ago is only seen in vague flashbacks, and Lambert is very purposefully vague in terms of allowing the audience to take sides. Did Andrew do the right thing by sending his brother to jail or should we be as furious with him as his sister appears to be. Of course, in situations like this there are often no easy answers, but the lack of narrative clarity to hold onto here... We’ve too often seen stories like this before and the characters/setting don’t stand out in a way that allows this to resonate as a mood piece. The performances are good, especially Beaty, and I’m always drawn to films that offer more questions than answers, but every time I tried to put my finger on “In the Radiant City,” it slipped away. From one small town to another, we move to the sparsely-populated home of Katie ( Olivia Cooke ), the naïve, wide-eyed protagonist of “Katie Says Goodbye. ” Wayne Roberts’ vision of a young woman’s journey through Hell—to escape a miserable life that she somehow still greets with a daily smile feels—too often like poverty exploitation, looking down on people who live as truck-stop waitresses or... I don’t believe this is Roberts’ intention, but by writing a cast of characters who feel clichéd and unbelievable creates the effect in that I never believed a second of “Katie Says Goodbye. " Its truly dark edges feel more grimy and exploitative than moving. None of this is the fault of Cooke, who gives her all to a movie that doesn’t give enough in return. She plays Katie, a sweetheart of a waitress who happens to sleep with the truckers who come through the restaurant to make a little extra cash so she can leave this dark corner of the country. Her mother ( Mireille Enos ) is an awful human being, the kind who steals the rent that Katie gives her to pass along to the landlord, essentially forcing her daughter to prostitute herself more to make up for it. Mary Steenburgen plays Katie’s... The world around Katie is so menacing and oppressive that Katie starts to resemble a heroine in a horror movie—we know something bad is going to happen to her and the only question is if she’ll make it out of town alive. Roberts can’t handle the dark places his story goes, and none of the supporting cast works. Cooke is good here, largely because she’s a talented actress but also because only her character feels like more than a plot device. Pete Travis’ “City of Tiny Lights” has a similar “performance is better than the movie” problem, but this one works more overall, partially because it’s not so viciously dark, and the setting offers the filmmakers a chance to tackle a classic... Based on the book by Patrick Neate, who adapted his own work, “City of Tiny Lights” is a multicultural noir, a movie that tackles the new melting pot of London in a unique way, as anchored by a strong performance from the great Riz Ahmed (going... The script for “City of Tiny Lights” never quite comes together, but Ahmed.

Giving an art-videotape aesthetic to a touching family drama, director Phil Morrison and screenwriter Angus MacLachlan present their first present, which was shot in their hometown of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The film is set in nearby Pfafftown and Pilot Mountain, and location is itself a dramatis persona in the film as long sequences of soundless photography show rows of houses, or rooms in a house, or stretches of farmland-capturing the distillate of this area of the South. Successful, cosmopolitan, and adorable Chicago couple Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz) and George (Alessandro Nivola) make the acquaintance of at a fancy art auction where she is working as a dealer, and they are married six months later. Madeleine is recruiting an outsider artist, and she travels to rustic North Carolina to meet him. George accompanies her, as he is originally from Pfafftown, and though it has been three years since he visited home, Madeleine insists on session his family. When she does, she finds herself in a world totally different from her own, and sees a new side of her husband. His mother Peg (Celia Weston) and father Eugene (Scott Wilson) are retired homebodies who aren't sure what to make of Madeleine's sophisticated career and lilting British accent. George's deadbeat kinsman Johnny (Ben McKenzie) never finished high school, and lives at home with his young wife Ashley (Amy Adams), who is naive and animated-and very pregnant. While the family's simplicity, traditional values, and religion make them suspicious of Madeleine, Ashley is the one bright-eyed temper who is happy to have Madeleine as a sister-in-law and celebrates her marriage to George. JUNEBUG is an effecting film that sheds light both on the always-surprising identity of in-laws, and the unique culture of the South.
