After an anonymous patron provides him with an income, orphaned Pip sets out for the life of a young gentleman. But soon a criminal to whom Pip once showed kindness resurfaces, leading to some surprising revelations. Director David Lean has created a moving, well-crafted adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel.

"It has been called the greatest of all the Dickens films, and it does what few movies based on great books can do: Creates pictures on the screen that do not clash with the images already existing in our minds." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
