Quotes

Estella: Drummle died two years ago. He was kicking his horse, and the horse kicked back.
Pip: I'm sorry to hear that. I'm sorry for anything that brings you sorrow.
Estella: Well, rest assured, I feel none. My husband and I made each other perfectly miserable - just as intended. I have been bent and broken, but I hope into a better shape.

User Reviews

beautiful in profound sense
13 September 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

it has a special beauty. far to be perfect, far to be convincing at whole, it has the science to use the kitsch and the light, the dialog and the details in wise manner. and that performance is its high virtue. old stereotypes - Helena Bonham Carter using Tim Burton recipes, remarkable parts - Jeremy Irvine as one of the most good Pip and the nuances of Magwitch by Joseph Fiennes, the crumbs of sentimentalism and the air of novel does it more than a correct adaptation. a beautiful film in profound sense. for the romanticism, for the links between characters, for the inspired way to tell the story. sure, nothing spectacular. sure, almost nothing new. but useful for remember the spirit of a great novel.
