Rating: 3/4 -- The film is a successful translation of the basic material from one period and approach to another. Especially in the early Florida scenes, it seems timeless. Full Review
...Exciting....It's the films very lightness which confirms Cuaron as probably the most graceful director to emerge in Hollywood this decade...
Sight and Sound
Rating: D+ -- Charles Dickens' novel has been pared to the bone and set in the present day, and the result is a beautifully shot mess. The characters' motivations could not be any less clear.
Rating: 3/5 -- Where the film fails is in its commercial proclivity to centre the narrative trajectory around a fairly asinine updating of the Pip/Estella love-match into a soppy romance. Full Review
...Paltrow and Hawke are dazzling....Cuaron imbues their journey with something rare in movies: a genuine romantic spirit...
...Spellbinding camerawork and sexy leads keep this romance lushly entertaining...
...Mr. Cuaron is such a voluptuous visual stylist, this GREAT EXPECTATIONS is capable of wonder...
New York Times
A rising artist, flourishing with the help of a benefactor, falls fruitlessly in love with his wealthy childhood playmate, who has grown to be a beautiful coquette. But the nefarious influence of her eccentric, spiteful maiden aunt taints their relationship. A stylish, heavily romantic updating of the eponymous Dickens classic, staged in 1970s south Florida. Bancroft, as the "Miss Havisham" character, steals the show.
