    I loved this version of the story. The cast was excellent and the photography is wonderful. The "making of" is one of the better ones I've seen. Jim Broadbent plays a nasty dude for a change. If you like Dickens, you'll like this one. IMDB has a very good rating on film.

    I just saw this at a friends yesterday and thought it was wonderful.
    Its good to see Jamie Bell (Billy Eliot) in another film and he was quite wonderful in this. the guy that plays Nicholas seemed really fmiliar to me and I later found on IMDB that he is in the original British miniseries of Queer aws Folk.
    Wonderful film, wonderful cast. A touching film, Christpher Plummer is a dastardly villain, and the section with Nathan Lane is hysterical.

    I saw it at the local arthouse theater here, and it was one of the most energetic and spirited adaptations of Dickens I've seen. Kept me riveted from bigging to end. Not sure I'd want a repeat viewing.
