REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's handsome, involving and stars the cream of British acting talent - but so did Lean's unbeatable version, and Newell and Nicholls' safe, schoolteacher-friendly interpretation makes no real case for going down this much-travelled road once more..”
by Guy Lodge [Empire Magazine]
“..is never less than watchable, but the pacing frequently drags and it lacks the emotional impact of the recent BBC TV version..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
“..the pleasures of this adaptation are ultimately little more than a meager imitation of the riches Dickens achieved on the page..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
