Very well made
I loved this film, it was simply well made for this modern time. I read the book by Charles Dickens and it is quite different, but very enjoyable.You never know do you? It was a bit confusing, I mean Gwyneth Paltrow’s character, I guess you could say she was unique. And I understood Ethan Hawkes character perfectly. Wonderful film, I’d recommend it to anyone.
An excellent love story
Although the 1998 film adaptation of “Great Expectations” may be lacking much of Dickens’ original detail, the film in and of itself is quite sturdy. As a love story the film holds its own – Hawke and Paltrow seem to have a chemistry that does not come off as forced as in some of their other respective works. There are slight hints at the humor that riddled Dickens’ work, but perhaps more enjoyable is the endearing relationship between Uncle Joe and young Finn (Chris Cooper and Jeremy Kissner). Along these lines comes the brief yet memorable performance by the acting great Robert De Niro, who plays the escaped convict Arthur Lustig. It is rare anymore to get a truly great Hollywood love story, let alone a decent one. All to often love is portrayed as a quirky and cute emotion rather than one of trial and tribulation. It is relieving every once in a while to have a love story without Julia Roberts or Hugh Grant or, at times, both. Overall the movie is quite good, and especially worth seeing on a date or with a loved one.
