Great Expectations US Trailer. Mike Newell‘s Great Expectations (2012) movie trailer stars Jeremy Irvine, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Flemyng, Robbie Coltrane, and Holliday Grainger. Great Expectations‘ plot synopsis: ”Great Expectations is one of the classic love stories of all time, and touches on all aspects of that thrilling experience. A young boy, lifted from obscure poverty, to be given a glimpse of life as it could be for him. A young girl, taught never to let others into her heart. Together, the possibility of love. Apart, despair.
What young man has never dreamed of discovering that their drab life of work and burden is to be cast aside, in favor of privilege and good fortune. What young person could seize such an opportunity without making enemies as well as friends. What young woman has not turned their face to the sun, and dreamed of its warmth for her heart.
Pip and Estella, their story.”
