About Great Expectations (2012)

A new adaptation of Dickens' novel with stunning locations and an all-star cast. Orphan Pip (Jeremy Irvine) is raised in poverty by his angry sister (Sally Hawkins) and her kindly husband (Jason Flemyng). One day a frightening convict named Magwitch (Ralph Fiennes) leaps from behind a tombstone and changes Pip's life forever. After Pip helps him break free of his irons, Magwitch runs off into the night. Pip then encounters the upper class world when he visits the eternally jilted and strange Miss Havisham (Helena Bonham Carter) and her cold but beautiful ward Estella (Holliday Grainger). As a young man Pip is catapulted into rich society by a mysterious benefactor, and hopes that Miss Havisham is the one aiding him. But the events of his life are more connected than he realises.
