Nicholas Nickleby Movie Synopsis
Young Nicholas and his family have enjoyed a comfortable life... until now. Nicholas' father dies, the family is left penniless, and Nicholas, his sister, and mother venture to London to seek help from their Uncle Ralph. Unfortunately, Ralph's only intentions are to break up the family and exploit them, and Nicholas is sent to work as a teacher at a school run by the cruel, abusive, and horridly entertaining Wackford Squeers. Eventually, Nicholas runs away with his new friend Smike, and the two set off on an adventure to find and reunite the Nickleby family.
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens.
It was quite good; almost impossible as a movie to present within a reasonable time. However, all performances were well played, and it`s a film I can watch more than just the once.
Great movie!!! Charlie is awesome as Nicholas and Jamie Bell is great as Smike. I really love this movie.
This movies was great! If you haven`t read the book you should. although it is long (769 pages) it is a good read. Nathan Lane was so funny and Charlie was a very sexy Nicholas.
