This modern-day rendition of Dickens' famous novel on the big screen is based on a much simplified plot, hence missing much details. While the idea may be novel, the execution of it falls short of my 'expectation'. I am disappointed as director Alfonso Cuaron can do much better work.

People who have not read Charles Dickens' novel will likely not fully appreciate the brilliance of the modern re-telling of this classic tale of boy-meets-girl, albeit with a shocking Dickensian twist. Hawke's 'Pip', naive artist Finn Bell, is played exceptionally sensitively, and Anne Bancroft is deliciously over-the-top as the eccentric Dinsmore. As an artist and dreamer, this is one of my all-time favorites and I watch it often.
