“Adjusting Dickens’ work is a joy. I picked Great Expectations as the following work to bring to the screen in view of the ageless characters, yet in addition as a result of the auspicious story. An account of class versatility and class uncompromising nature, told through a seriously enthusiastic and individual first-individual story. As the child of a Blacksmith myself, Pip’s excursion from the manufacture into society is an exceptionally extraordinary one to me.”
