Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [A] glowing illumination of the warm and deliciously surprising tale. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Only rabid Dickensians will find fault with the present adaptation, and paradoxically only lovers of Dickens will derive maximum pleasure from the film. – Variety Staff, Variety, Feb 10, 2012

Fresh: [It] has been called the greatest of all the Dickens films, and [it] does what few movies based on great books can do: Creates pictures on the screen that do not clash with the images already existing in our minds. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Nov 6, 2007

Fresh: The graveyard scene is still a shocker, the details are still astonishingly well assembled, and the performances are wonderful. – Don Druker, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
