I have not seen Nicholas Nickleby since it was first released, and so it's a pleasure to report the film still has the ability to wash over you with its expansive cast of characters, its broad themes, and a charming storybook visual and editorial sensibility (longer takes, picture-frame compositions, and theatrical blocking). In taking Charles Dickens's original 952-page novel and condensing it to a mere 132 minutes, writer/director Douglas McGrath has maintained that incomparable spirit of Dickens's worldview--one of a heightened Victorian England and the makeup of its populace. http://www.theparallaxreview.com/on_c...
