The Life & Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
TO celebrate the bicentenary of Charles Dickens, StudioCANAL are releasing two Dickens’ classics: The Life & Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby and The Old Curiosity Shop.
Alongside Great Expectations, Nicholas Nickleby is considered the best of the feature adaptations of Dickens’ work, and the film comes with the added kudos of being an Ealing Studios title, directed by Alberto Cavalcanti (Went the Day Well?, Dead of Night) and starring Cedric Hardwicke, Derek Bond and Stanley Holloway.
Derek Bond plays the title character, a resourceful young Britisher forced to protect his family against the demonic machinations of his wicked Uncle Ralph (Cedric Hardwicke).
Cast out into the cold cruel world, Nicholas Nickleby deals adroitly with friend and foe alike, eventually coming full circle to mete out just desserts to his unspeakable uncle.
The Life & Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby is out to own on DVD on May 14, 2012.
