1946 at its best - Great Expectations review by JD

Spoiler Alert
05/12/2010

In this era of film making all the actors speak received English and come from good schools. Diction is clear and each shot a great work of art. Even the portrayal of a Dickensian plot reminds me of the original St. Trinian's. The acting from this era can be a little theatrical but John Mills was brilliantly subtle and the plot ran at a good pace. This will definitely not be to every ones taste. But if you habitually drink Earl Grey tea, try this.
