After the death of the family patriarch, young Nicholas Nickleby and his sister Kate are forced to split up by Nicholas' cold-hearted uncle Ralph, with Nicholas being sent to teach at Dotheboys Hall run by the brutish Wackford Squeers.

Actually, having watched it a second time (on blu-ray this time) my estimation of this film has gone up. It is a gorgeously colourful and good-looking production, Charlie Hunnam certainly has the wide-eyed innocence necessary to his character, and Jamie Bell makes a charming Smike. Most enjoyable.
