Great Expectations

Young orphan Pip finds his life changed forever soon after encountering and lending assistance to escaped convict Magwitch (Ralph Fiennes) on the marshlands near his home. Later, after being summoned to attend the stately home of Miss Havisham (Helena Bonham Carter) and finding himself mesmerised by the old lady's beautiful but cold-hearted niece, Estella, Pip learns that he has been granted an inheritance by a mysterious benefactor. After moving to London to be educated as a gentleman under the guardianship of lawyer Mr. Jaggers (Robbie Coltrane), a now adult Pip (Jeremy Irvine), believing he now has the necessary social standing, sets about convincing Estella (Holliday Grainger) that he is worthy of her love. An evocative new adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel from director Mike Newell.
