Nicholas Nickelby (2002) - Synopsis
From one of Charles Dickens' most beloved novels come some of his most unforgettable characters, vibrantly brought to life by a star-studded, award-winning cast.
In Nicholas Nickleby, young Nicholas and his family have enjoyed a comfortable life - but then again, this is Dickens. 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 a school run by the cruel, abusive, and horridly entertaining Wackford Squeers. Eventually, Nicholas runs away with fellow schoolmate Smike, and the two set off on an adventure to find and reunite the Nickleby family.
