Synopsis: Adapted by Andrew Adamson from the best-selling novel by Lloyd Jones, Mr. Pip is the story of how Mr. Watts (Hugh Laurie), a teacher on the war-torn island of Bougainville, helps a young girl survive the violence of her daily life through the power of imagination. Mr. Watts reads from his favourite book, “Great Expectations”, and 14-year-old Matilda (Xzannjah), is transported into the Victorian world, finding inspiration, friendship and hope when her real life is filled with harsh uncertainty and danger.
