The daughter of a country doctor copes with an unwanted stepmother, an impetuous stepsister, burdensome secrets, the town gossips, and the tug on her own heartstrings for a man who thinks of her only as a friend.
Outstanding performance of Gillian Anderson.As an ethereal and ghostly
Miss Havisham she is still creepy and manipulative.Who would say that
"Scully" managed to be such a great actress! Although Douglas Booth is
by far much more handsome as Pip would be;his performance is really
good.Many critics complained on the actor being such a model!I suppose
this is nonsense. Ray winstone is a stupendous Magwitch-all rage and

great-great-great-grandson) plays Herbert Pocket exactly as one
imagines him to be:the good and always amiable fellow. A great although
not perfect(which one is...)adaptation.
