Drama, Period and Historical
Charles Dickens' classic novel has been adapted many times but it's never lost its appeal. Here, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire director Mike Newell teams up with some superb British acting talent to deliver his own sumptuously shot and atmospheric version. Sticking closely to both the words and spirit of Dickens, the 19th-century-set drama sees penniless orphan Pip given the opportunity to escape his humble roots thanks to a mystery benefactor. Becoming a gentleman in London, Pip thinks his new wealth and social status will win over spoilt beauty Estella - a young heiress he's adored since childhood. However his expectations of love and life are repeatedly shattered, particularly when the shocking truth about his fortune is revealed.
