THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS is a festive comedy drama in which Charles Dickens, struggling with debt, begins work on a new book entitled 'A Christmas Carol'.

Language

Occasional use of mild bad language.

Threat

There are brief scary scenes in which Dickens invents characters for his book, including a dark hooded figure and a pale, ghostly old man. The 'ghosts' do not frighten Dickens and are clearly fantastical.

Infrequent mild violence occurs when a young boy punches a bully. Infrequent very mild sex references about characters in Dickens' books. More information is available for parents on the main BBFC website and the free BBFC App.
