From one of Charles Dickens most beloved novels come some of his most unforgettable characters, vibrantly brought to life by a star-studded, award winning cast. In NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, young Nicholas (Charlie Hunnam) and his family have enjoyed a comfortable life - but then again this is Dickens.
When Nicholas' father dies the family is left penniless, and Nicholas, his sister and mother venture to London to seek help from their Uncle Ralph (Christopher Plummer). Unfortunately, Ralph's only intentions are to break up the family and exploit them, and Nicholas is sent away to work at a school run by the cruel and abusive Wackford Squeers (Jim Broadbent). Eventually Nicholas runs away with his kind-hearted friend Smike (Jamie Bell), and the two set off on an adventure to find and reunite the Nickleby family.
