What is the movie Great Expectations about?
Considered one of the greatest British films of all time, David Lean’s “Great Expectations” is an abridged adaptation of the famous “Charles Dickens” novel. It tells the tale of Phillip “Pip” Pirrip, a young orphan living with his older sister and her husband. Young Pip runs into an escaped convict Magwitch and brings him some food and a file. Magwitch is later caught and imprisoned upon attacking his nemesis, another prison escapee. In the meantime, Pip regularly visits Miss Havisham, a wealthy eccentric, and her teenage daughter Estella, who he falls in love with even though she keeps mocking his commoner speech. Pip and Estella are separated when he turns 14 and enters a blacksmith apprenticeship. Six years later Pip is informed that an unknown benefactor has arranged for him to be sent to London to become a proper gentleman. When he turns 21 he is invited to visit Miss Havisham again, and he is delighted to see Estella, who has grown into a beautiful woman not lacking in suitors. Pip is desperately in love with Estella, but she breaks his heart when she chooses another man over him. In the meantime, it is revealed to Pip that his benefactor is Magwitch, the escaped convict he once helped. Pip will have to help Magwitch defeat his nemesis, and then try to win back the heart of Estella.
