Synopsis

Aided by a sterling British cast, director Mike 'Four Weddings' Newell and writer David 'One Day' Nicholls do Charles Dickens proud with this faithful adaptation of what's arguably his finest work. Jeremy Irvine plays Pip, the humble country boy who becomes a gentleman thanks to an unknown benefactor. But his life has always been awash with strange characters, from the skulking convict Magwitch (Ralph Fiennes) to the bitter recluse Miss Havisham (Helena Bonham Carter) and her beautiful but icy ward Estella (Holliday Grainger). Covering the story with great atmosphere and pace, there's much to recommend this version for newcomers and Dickensophiles alike.
