Great Expectations

British director Mike Newell bounces back to top form after more than a decade with the terrific adaptation of the classic novel by Charles Dickens. A young orphan crosses paths with three strangers, a convict, a wealthy spinster and a young girl who shape his life with great expectations. Newell and writer David Nicholls hit all the right marks to bring the beloved classic to the screen. Jeremy Irvine stars with a terrific performance with a stellar supporting cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Sally Hawkins, Robbie Coltrane, Jason Flemyng, Ewen Bremner and Holliday Grainger amongst others. 1001 Films' coverage of films on DVD.
