Sir Derek Jacobi (The Golden Compass, Gosford Park) and Toby Jones (W, Infamous) star in this enchanting adaptation of the Dickens classic, also featuring Sophie Vavasseur (Becoming Jane) as Little Nell.
Little Nell Trent lives with her devoted grandfather (Jacobi) in his London shop, a magical place filled from wall to wall with dust-laden treasures. Grandfather keeps his nocturnal gambling activities a secret but is deeply in debt to the evil profiteering loan shark Quilp (Jones). When he gambles away what little money they possess, The Old Curiosity Shop is seized by Quilp as payment and Nell and her grandfather are forced to flee London and seek refuge elsewhere. On the run, and with Quilp on their tails, the pair fall in with a number of colourful characters, some friendly and some villainous.
This poignant film brings some of Dickens’s most colourful, tragic and humorous characters to life with an all star ensemble cast including Zoë Wanamaker (Doctor Who, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) and Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Office).

Driven only by his addiction and his selfish desire to save his own skin, Nell's grandfather increasingly shows his darker side until he literally casts Nell out into the cold rain to beg on the streets for their survival. However when Nell falls ill a larger tragedy awaits.
Full of heart breaking tragedy and a star studded cast this drama makes for compelling viewing.
At only two hours it is impossible to be faithful to the novel. In truth, it feels rushed. A proper version of this is yet to be made.

A very unremarkable adaptation in my view. The characters are mere shadows of the those in the book. Serves as plot summery.Published 4 months ago by R. Townsend
