Great Expectations (1998): review- 2/10

2/10 (one star for Gwyneth's bottom)

A Floridan painter, of low social origins, is romantically fixated by a snooty rich girl he met as a child.

He goes to New York to succeed as an artist, and where he tries to get her to have sex with him. Apart from being snooty she has no personality whatsoever but that doesn't bother him because she is good-looking in that insipid way that seems to entrance some people...

A contemporary US take on Dicken's novel, laboured in all scenes.

WARNING: some scenes in this film feature Francisco Clemente's paintings.
