THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF NICHOLAS NICKLEBY | Out Now

Based on Charles Dickens' novel, Nicholas Nickelby tells the story of the eponymous hero and his attempts to escape the clutches of his greedy moneylender Uncle Ralph by joining a troupe of actors. Staying true to the dark mood of the book, Ealing stalwart Alberto Cavalcanti conjures up a triumphantly atmospheric adaptation of the literary classic featuring great performances from Cederic Hardwicke and Derek Bond, who went on to star in several other Ealing classics.
