Directed by Mike Newell, who already has several hits on his resume including “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” on a script by David Nicholls, “Great Expectations” boasts a superb and very talented cast as well.
Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Robbie Coltrane, Jeremy Irvine and Holliday Grainger will bring to life this story of love, revenge and money.
