One of the most famous novels of all time has been brought to the big screen again by director Mike Newell. Great Expectations, the story of an orphan who becomes a gentleman with the help of a mysterious benefactor, was selected as the closing night gala of the BFI London Film Festival. Panalux worked with DoP John Mathieson and Gaffer Alan Martin on this lavish and atmospheric reworking of Charles Dickens’ classic novel. It’s in cinemas from 30th November but, in the meantime, you can watch the trailer above.
