Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is 170 years old, this Christmas.
And director Ron Carlson has found a new way to present it.
With his new movie, “All-American Christmas Carol”, which premieres today, Ron gives us a female protagonist, Cindy, who lives an uninspired life in a trailer park. Before the arrival of three 2013-updated ghosts, Cindy could not care less about her family, her future or the consequences of her actions.
But it’s Christmas…and there’s supernatural magic afoot…
Ron, who is the founder of August Heart Films, talked about the making of “All-American Christmas Carol”, and his experiences with re-creating Dickens’ classic in a new and unconventional setting.
August Heart Films’ “All-American Christmas Carol” is available today on On Demand, Amazon.com, iTunes and in major DVD outlets.
