SYNOPSIS

Directed by Mike Newell, “Great Expectations” is a retelling of the classic and beloved Charles Dickens story of the young orphan Pip, who is given a chance to rise from his humble beginnings thanks to a mysterious benefactor. Moving through London’s class-ridden world as a gentleman, Pip uses his newfound position to pursue the beautiful Estella, a spoilt heiress he’s loved since childhood. Yet the shocking truth behind his great fortune will have devastating consequences for everything he holds dear.

About the Director and Screenwriter

Mike Newell, born in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, was educated at Cambridge. He undertook three years of training at Granada Television, with the intention of entering the theatre, but instead began a career as a television director. His first critically acclaimed feature film was “Dance with a Stranger,” which won the Award of the Youth at the 1985 Cannes Film Festival. He’s gone on to direct many more successful films, among them “Enchanted April,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Donnie Brasco,” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” In 2005, he was awarded the BAFTA Britannia Award for Artistic Excellence in Directing.
