Normally, I wouldn’t care too much about the umpteenth adaption of Dickens’ classic novel Great Expectations. However, this one is directed by Mike Newell and stars Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, and Robbie Coltrane, along with newcomers Jeremy Irvine as Pip and Holliday Grainger as Estella.
For those unaware, Great Expectations follows a young orphan who is given a chance to rise from his humble beginnings thanks to a mysterious benefactor. Along the way he falls in love with a girl who will never love him. [via firstshowing]
