Movie Info

A young girl and her doting grandfather flee from a vicious debt collector and a mysterious stranger in this made-for-BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale. Deep in the heart of London, Little Nell Trent (Sophie Vavasseur) lives with her grandfather (Sir Derek Jacobi) in his Old Curiosity Shop. There, dust-coated treasures cover the walls, and line the shelves. But Little Nell's grandfather is a compulsive gambler, and eventually his debts become so large that the malevolent Quilp (Toby Jones) seizes the shop. Desperate, Little Nell and her grandfather flee the city. But no matter how far they run, it seems like Quilp and the mysterious stranger are always hot on their heels. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Old Curiosity Shop

Every once in a while, I find a BBC film that I really enjoy. This was not one of those times. I watched about half an hour and could not tolerate the boredom any more. Don't bother with this- unless you're looking for something to put you to sleep.
