Despite reading a review that did not give me much hope I went ahead and watched it for the SECOND time. Okay its been reworked a bit and not quite true to the story but the performance is young and very fresh. I particularly enjoyed Gillian Anderson as Miss Haversham what was great was one minute she looked haggard then the next shot in the same scene had her looking stunning.Very effective. The Pip character was just the right amount of smouldering,young sexiness needed, look forward to seeing more of Mr Booth, Estella was so cold and so good,her soon to be husband was a super baddie. Great to see Mr Suchet playing the Lawyer,Orlick was excellent too.Ray Winstone was an added bonus and brought some real originality to this great Dickens story. Loved it, even better the second time around.
