3.5 out of 10 Fantastic modern adaptation of a fantastic book.
Colm from Galway, 17 Apr 2008
Classic storyline adapted from Dickensian London and morphed into modern day Florida / New York. Ethan Hawke is well cast in the lead and Chris Cooper is superb as Hawke's unwitting but caring guardian. Keep an ear out for the cracking theme music.

What's it about....
The moment young Finn sets eyes on Estella, she becomes his inspiration--and his obsession. Despite being warned "she'll only break your heart," he vows to win her love. Years later, thanks to a mysterious benefactor, aspiring artist Finn is off to New York, where he is reunited with the icy and beautiful Estella. When she agrees to model for him, Finn's dearest hopes may at last be realized--along with his darkest fears.
