‘GREAT EXPECTATIONS’ (1946)
Sunday 12th December 2021

David Lean’s spellbinding screen translation effectively captures the spirit of Charles Dickens’ literary masterpiece. It tells the story of young Pip who experiences two distinctly different encounters with the escaped convict Abel Magwitch and the eccentric Miss Haversham. With a life of hard grind in a blacksmithy looking the most likely prospect, Pip’s fortunes change dramatically when the generosity of a mysterious benefactor propels him to London to begin his journey becoming a gentleman with ’great expectations’.
