You cold, cold heart!
Do you reproach ME of being cold? I learned your lessons. I am what you have made me.
Who taught me to be proud? Who told me that daylight would blight me, that I may not go out in it and now I cannot? I have never once been unfaithful to you or to your 'schooling'. I have never shown any weakness that I can charge myself with!
Would it be weakness to return respect? To return love?

Director Julian Jarrold does a truly excellent job of bringing Charles Dickens' finest novel to the screen. Filled with haunting camera angles, a magnificent score by Peter Salem, and superb acting by Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd and Justine Waddall, this version of GREAT EXPECTATIONS is defintly worth multiple viewings!!
