Threat advisory: High - High risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

Every family needs a hero.

Young Nicholas (Charlie Hunnam) and his family enjoy a comfortable life, until Nicholas' father dies and the family is left penniless. Nicholas, his sister and mother venture to London to seek help from their Uncle Ralph (Christopher Plummer), but Ralph's only intentions are to separate the family and exploit them. Nicholas is sent to a school run by the cruel, abusive and horridly entertaining Wackford Squeers (Jim Broadbent) but he escapes with a schoolmate and sets off to reunite the family. An intimately epic version of Dickens' classic.

Theatrical report

Well, Nicholas Nickleby is ok, but it's not Emma. Charlie Hunnam is pretty but wet. The Squeers family is without redeeming features. To the modern eye it's full of outrageous stereotypes and clichés.

Jamie Bell goes off.
