One comment on “Great Expectations

  1. David Leans version of Great Expectations is number one with most people because it is so faithful to Dickens. The director isn’t trying to make a name for himself on the back of a famous story, as is so often the case. And then you can add in a superb cast, Gothic presentation and a magnificent musical score. For the uninitiated and the Dickens buff alike there really isn’t any need for a further dramatisation. Only the ending spoils this film and for that I suppose it can be excused by the old saying ‘ everyone must leave the theatre feeling happy, never mind if it doesn’t fit.
