Period and Historical
Themes of loyalty, betrayal and revenge are explored with a lightness of touch in this fast-paced, fun adaptation. Following the death of his father, Nicholas Nickleby finds himself penniless and head of his family at the young age of nineteen. His struggle to find his place in the world and support his mother and sister leads him to encounters with an array of colourful characters; brilliantly brought to life here by an impressive ensemble cast including Christopher Plummer as the miserly and menacing Ralph Nickleby and Jim Broadbent as the repugnant Squeers. The film’s emphasis on the humour and sentimentality of Dickens’ work make this accessible and engaging introduction to the classic novel.
