Great Expectations

A new version of “Great Expectations” was released in other countries last year, but won’t hit U.S. theaters until Oct. 11, 2013. Based on the cast, crew and trailer, it looks like a lovely adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens novel.

Great Expectations

The story follows poor orphan Pip (Jeremy Irvine, who played the main character in “War Horse”), who unexpectedly becomes a gentleman with the help of a mysterious benefactor. With his newfound status, Pip pursues Estella (Holliday Grainger, whom I love as Lucrezia in the Showtime series “The Borgias”), a beautiful heiress he has always loved.

However, if anyone discovers the truth behind his stature, it will have devastating consequences for Pip and everything and everyone he cares for.
