The movie was good, not totally accurate, but good. The portrayal of Dick Swiveller was spot on, Geoff Breton embraced the role perfectly. Quilp was pretty good, Nell was okay, Sally Brass was missing her headdress, and GT was more robust than I had envisioned. The movie was weak in its portrayal of the journey of Nell and her grandfather; one does not get the same trudging feeling from their trek that is depicted in the book. Overall, the movie gets an average rating.
