Great Expectations 12 rating

Pip, a poor blacksmith's apprentice, becomes a gentleman with the help of an unknown benefactor. A BAFTA-nominated telling of the Dickens' classic.

Drama 2012 129 mins

Director: Mike Newell


Widely judged Dickens' finest novel, and certainly one of his most gripping and atmospheric, Great Expectations tells of Pip, a young orphan who unexpectedly comes into a fortune via an anonymous benefactor. Jeremy Irvine and Holliday Grainger head up this dark and sumptuous adaptation, with Ralph Fiennes as Magwitch and Helen Bonham Carter as a very gothic Miss Haversham.
