Mr Pip

Eka Darville, Florence Korokoro, Hugh Laurie, Andrew Adamson

Movie propaganda

Directed, written and produced by Academy Award®-nominated Andrew Adamson, Mr. Pip is based on Lloyd Jones' seminal novel which won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. The film was shot on location in Bougainville, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand. Set against the backdrop of civil war in Bougainville, Mr. Pip stars Golden Globe-winner Hugh Laurie (House) as the enigmatic teacher Mr. Watts who reads to his pupils from Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations". Matilda, a 14-year-old student played by newcomer Xzannjah, is transported by her imagination and the world of Dickens, becoming transfixed by the characters and Mr Watts' interpretation of the story. The film also stars Healsville Joel, Eka Darville and Kerry Fox. A wonderful tale of the imaginative power of story that reveals that on an island at war, fiction can have dangerous consequences.
