Nothing is quite as it seems in this lush retelling of Dickens’ classic coming-of-age story with colorful characters - conspirators, rogues, rakes, and wretches - and stunning performances by Gillian Anderson, David Suchet, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth, and Vanessa Kirby. Young orphan Pip wants no more from life than to one day join his brother-in-law Joe at the blacksmith’s forge. Until, that is, fate intervenes - twice. First, an escaped convict (Winstone) ambushes Pip in the marshes; and not long after, a wealthy, reclusive neighbor at the macabre Satis House - Miss Havisham (Andersen) - seeks Pip out as a playmate for her adopted daughter, Estella. Pip falls almost instantly in love with Estella, and realizes that he needs to be more than a simple blacksmith’s apprentice if he ever hopes to win her. But Miss Havisham - a bride-to-be who was jilted at the altar years ago and still wears her wedding dress amidst the fossilized ruins of her wedding feast - has gone to great lengths to ensure that Estella will never so much as risk heartbreak, raising her more as a tool for vengeance than a child. But when Pip is mysteriously plucked from obscurity and lured to London by an anonymous benefactor hoping to make a gentleman out of him, he suddenly has unlimited wealth at his disposal - and true love in his future. Or so he thinks.
Editor's Note
Gillian Anderson, David Suchet, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth, and Vanessa Kirby star in this retelling of GREAT EXPECTATIONS, the classic coming-of-age tale of an orphan whose plans to become a blacksmith are interrupted when a fateful run-in leaves him as playmate to the adopted daughter of a wealthy, yet reclusive neighbor.
