In Dickens’ bicentennial year, his most heart-rending fable is treated to a fresh makeover.
In this version the humble orphan Pip is played by Irvine (WAR HORSE), and the film opens with a terrifying scene as he goes to visit his family grave and encounters an escaped convict (Fiennes).
Later Pip meets the strange Miss Havisham – played with gothic gusto by Bonham Carter, in a role surely made for her – and learns from the rambunctious Mr Jaggers (Coltrane) that he has a mysterious benefactor who wants to make a gentleman of him. Director Newell (HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, DONNIE BRASCO) presents the film as both a love story and a thriller, without losing sight of Dickens’ sharp social satire.
Contains moderate violence and occasional gory moments.
