Common Sense Note

Parents need to know this adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic may be too frightening and dramatic for younger viewers. Serious themes are the center of this film: A man is forced to relive his greatest agonies; and there are two heart-wrenching deathbed scenes. And a cycle of guilt and anger is passed from an embittered father to his emotionally-wounded son.
