descriptionThis award-winning new adaptation of Charles Dickens' enduring classic is remarkable for outstanding acting, its faithfulness to the book and for breath-taking period location filming around London, Kent and the Thames Estuary.
It is the story of a woman whose suffering at the hands of one man sparked a desire for revenge on the entire sex; of a young man's rise from apprentice blacksmith to London "gentleman"; and of his ill-fated obsession with a seemingly untouchable woman. But more than that, it is a story of conflict and flux. Pip' s wealthy benefactor, Estella' s father, Miss Havisham' s one-time fiancé-they all turn out to be convicts. In a world where people' s fortunes are founded on nothing more solid than conspiracies, accidents and the odd act of kindness, the influence of the criminal underclass is never far away.
