About this title

Synopsis:

Violence and Victorian gentility meet in this powerful dramatization of one of Dickens' greatest works. While passing through the churchyard where his mother is buried, a young Pip encounters a desperate convict, Magwitch. Soon afterward he is summoned by the wealthy, eccentric recluse Miss Havisham to play with her beautiful but cruel ward Estella. With these two remarkable encounters begins Pip's epic journey from boy to man. When Pip comes of age, Miss Havisham's lawyer informs him he has come into great wealth. But who exactly is the source of his mysterious new fortune? And perhaps it is not so easy—or desirable—to leave his humble past behind. Geraldine McEwan and Douglas Hodge star in this rousing full-cast dramatization.

Review:

An absorbing mystery as well as a morality tale, the story of Pip, a poor village lad, and his expectations of wealth is Dickens at his most deliciously readable. The cast of characters includes kindly Joe Gargery, the loyal convict Abel Magwitch and the haunting Miss Havisham. If you have heartstrings, count on them being tugged.
