Filmed during the hot dry summer of 2018, the film was finally premiered in Canada in September 2019 and theatrically released in the UK in January 2020. The reason for the long gap was to avoid the congestion of big box office releases in the Summer and Christmas periods and the fact it was realized the final edit was not going to be ready in time for a mass release in Autumn 2019. January/February is often considered a good time to release smaller independent, art-house or 'serious' films due to the lack of competition from the major studios in that period and the dominance they will have in terms of publicity and theatrical screen availability. So it was decided early on to aim to have the film in UK cinemas in that period and to release it in other countries during similar 'quiet periods during the year or when there was some expected screen availability in that territory.

A multicultural cast and very eccentric characters, yet still a rather unremarkable presentation of a remarkable story.
A mostly straightforward telling of Dicken's story but with a multicultural cast. Although the story of rags to riches to rags to riches is quite remarkable, this presentation wasn't really anything special, although the reproduction of Dickensian London was well done. Good acting and emphasizing the eccentricities of each of the characters brought some humour to the film, but it didn't really stand out.
