Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations" has seen numerous film iterations over the years, the most memorable possibly being the 1998 modernized version starring Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow. Now director Mike Newell ("Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Love in the Time of Cholera") has taken the story back to its 19th century roots and gone full period costume drama. Jeremy Irvine stars as Pip, an orphan whose life is curated into that of a fine gentleman with the help of a rich benefactor (Fiennes).
