Did You Know?

Goofs

When Henry watches Great Expectations (1946) at the cinema, it is projected at the wrong aspect ratio: despite being made in 4:3, it is projected in widescreen (it looks to be about 16:9) and hence all the people are short and fat. See more »

Read the novel instead!
20 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I finally got round to watching this recently. Having read Michelle Magorian's excellent novel, my expectations were quite high. The adaptation however turned to be a sad disappointment. It was poorly paced, badly written and lacked focus. What happened to Henry's interest in film? Sure, there were a few scenes in a cinema, and I was glad to see The Third Man being shown and homaged (with brief chiaroscuro lighting and dutch angles), but that whole element was pushed aside in favour of the uninspired drama scenes. I did admire some of its performances, especially Charlie Clark who gave an intriguing turn as Grace, but all in all it fails where the book was so successful.
