Jim Carrey dominates this latest version of the classic Dickens story in which an elderly Victorian miser is taken on a redemptive trip through his past, present and future. Using 'performance capture' animation this stylish film sticks closely to the book, though with added ghoulishness.
Good family entertainment. find out more...

AMISTAD (1998)

Certification15 Our Rating

A group of abducted Africans break free from their shackles aboard a Spanish slave ship, the Amistad, so setting the scene for a lengthy courtroom drama played out against a backdrop of 19th Century slavery.
