Students and Faculty: Join us for dinner at 6, the movie at 7, and discussion afterwards.
One of Charles Dickens' best-loved (and most complex) stories receives its fourth feature film adaptation in this lively historical comedy-drama. Nicholas Nickleby (Charlie Hunnam) is a 19-year-old who becomes the head of the family when his father dies unexpectedly.
A movie where honor wins. So seldom do you hear about integrity in today's world, and this was a movie about being true to yourself, believing in your values and the balance of cruelty and kindness. Great performances by all. Nicely done!
The film is enriched by an imaginatively mixed cast of antic spirits, headed by Christopher Plummer as the subtlest and most complexly evil Uncle Ralph I've ever seen in the many film and stage adaptations of the work.
