Mr. Pip Trailer

As a war rages on in the province of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, a young girl becomes transfixed by the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is being read at school by the only white man in the village.

It’s good to see Hugh Laurie stepping away from his House shoes. Mr. Pip, directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek, Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), has been taking a while to get a release. The trailer makes it look like it could be quite powerful, but something tells me this won’t be getting a theatrical release in many countries.
