A remarkable adaptation of my favorite Dickens novel (no spoilers),
This review is from: Great Expectations Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video)
I'm more than a bit tired of seeing so many reviews which criticize movies and miniseries for not being faithful to "the book." Literature and Film are very different art forms, and adapting a great novel like this one to the screen is always a supreme challenge.
I've rarely seen it done as well as it has been here. My few quibbles are not worth mentioning, so I won't.... I am much too overwhelmed by the superb script, acting, sets, and score. I'd give it ten stars if I could.
