Synopsis

Michael York (Logan's Run) and Oscar® nominees* Sarah Miles (Blow-Up), and James Mason (A Star Is Born) lead a sumptuous adaptation of Charles Dickens' beloved novel, Great Expectations.

Pip (York) is a poor young man from the working class who finds new meaning in his life when he falls for the beautiful and well-off Estella (Miles). However, due to Pip's station in life, Estella cruelly views him as nothing but a mere distraction. But when Pip comes into a fortune inherited from a mysterious benefactor, he is able to improve his social status – and sets about wooing her in earnest.

A tale of ambition and love – and all its goods and ills – Great Expectations is one of the world's most eternally classic stories, beautifully told in this cinematic adaptation from Tony award-winning** director Joseph Hardy.
