Win tickets to an evening of Great Expectations

Great Expectations

Compiled by Jack Foley

IN conjunction with the much anticipated launch of Mike Newell’s Great Expectations on Blu-ray and DVD, the Charles Dickens Museum welcome you to celebrate one of Dickens’s best loved novels in the wonderfully evocative atmosphere of the home he once lived in.

The evening, which takes place on either Wednesday, March 20, or Thursday, March 21 will commence with a glass of wine and a talk by Museum Director Dr Florian Schweizer.

Find out what drives one generation of film makers after another to explore what Newell describes as ‘one of Dickens’s darkest-shadowed stories’. Explore one of the great masterpieces of world literature and discuss what the eminent author himself would have thought of such cinematic renderings?

Following the talk there will be an opportunity for an exclusive sneak preview of the film prior to its release on Blu-ray and DVD on March 25, 2013, from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Talk begins at 6.30pm, film screening begins at 7.15pm. To find out more, visit the website
