What's the film about?

For those who don't know the plot of this classic tale...

Thanks to a mysterious benefactor, orphan boy Pip rises up as a gentleman in London and is finally able to pursue beautiful heiress Estella whom he's loved since childhood.

But when he finds out where his money comes from, life as he knows it is changed completely.

Who's in it? Jeremy Irvine, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, David Walliams

Handbag hearts:

As the title says, there is a lot of expectation on the film based on Charles Dickens classic but they totally deliver.

You can't really go wrong when you've got the great Helena Bonham Carter playing Miss Havisham. She's absulotely perfect as the loony jilted bride.

Jeremy Irvine is set to be the next biggest Brit export to the land of Hollywood and he follows up on his recent flick with another stella performance as pip.

Ralph Fiennes, Holliday Granger and David Walliams all give amazing performances and we can safely assume that the film will bag itself a few prizes at award season.

Complaints:

There's nothing to complain about if you are a fan of the book. If not then you might think it can all be a bit much at times but ther'e not much they can do about that.

Verdict: It's been 60 years since this film was shown on the big screen and there's no better cast to bring it to life than the crew assembled here.

P.S. We are totally crushing on Jeremy Irvine but he's already been snapped up by Ellie Goulding! Sob...
