A comic, brutal and passionate take of greed and love in Victorian England. A top-notch cast of veteran actors and rising young newcomers shines in a lavish new British production of the Charles Dickens classic. The hero, a penniless young gentleman, struggles to make his way in the world and protect his mother and sister, meeting up with the worst and best of humanity along the way. Charles Dance (The Jewel in the Crown) stars as Ralph Nickleby, with James D'Arcy (Rebel Heart) as Nicholas and Sophia Myles (Mansfield Park) as his beautiful sister, Kate. Other standouts include Lee Ingleby (Ever After) as Smike, Nicholas' faithful companion, and Dominic West (28 Days) as the lecherous Sir Mulberry Hawk.
A vengeful uncle, a headmaster from hell, upper-class wastrels and twin benefactors. These are just some of the larger-than-life Dickens' characters portrayed to perfection in this lavish new production from Britain's Channel Four. Featuring Charles Dance (The Jewel in the Crown) as Ralph Nickleby, the wealthy and cold-hearted uncle whom Nicholas (James D'Arcy) and his sister Kate (Sophia Myles) turn to when their father's death leaves them destitute. Nicholas eagerly takes on a teaching job at a boy's boarding school, but flees after rebelling against the unspeakable horrors there. Meanwhile, his sister's beauty attracts menacing attention from a group of rich, boorish swells. With powerful enemies marshaled against him, Nicholas struggles to find his way in the world and rescue his family. DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: cast filmographies, Charles Dickens materials and scene index.
