Great Expectations

Great Expectations

Mike Newell

USA/United Kingdom, 2012, 128 min., English


The veteran Brit filmmaker, Mike Newell, (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) leads this meticulous, lavish production against the modern times’ trends (a position which usually bears fruit), where quality television seems to assume the task to adapt the great, intricate novels of literature to TV series (precisely, Great Expectations was already made into a series). In this film prevails the sure value of a striking intergenerational cast: Jeremy Irvine, Holliday Grainger, Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes embody the main characters of the coming-of-age novel by Pip, that ill-fated young man under the demiurgic breath of a mysterious benefactor.
