Description of this Book

Violence and Victorian gentility meet in this powerful dramatization of one of Dickens' greatest works. While passing through the churchyard where his mother is buried, a young Pip encounters a desperate convict, Magwitch. Soon afterward he is summoned by the wealthy, eccentric recluse Miss Havisham to play with her beautiful but cruel ward Estella. With these two remarkable encounters begins Pip's epic journey from boy to man. When Pip comes of age, Miss Havisham's lawyer informs him he has come into great wealth. But who exactly is the source of his mysterious new fortune? And perhaps it is not so easy--or desirable--to leave his humble past behind. Geraldine McEwan and Douglas Hodge star in this rousing full-cast dramatization.
