Nicholas Nickleby

3

Emma helmer Douglas McGrath's take on Charles Dickens' yarn is another spry literary adaptation, enlivened no end by a top-drawer cast. The novel's gallery of grotesques becomes a circus of scenery-chewers, everyone from kiddie-thrasher Jim Broadbent to board-treader Nathan Lane taking a juicy bite. Sadly, it's our hero who lets the side down: Charlie Hunnam's noble Nicholas is a beach-blond hunk of blandness.
