Well, Richard, Miss Havisham was dumped by her intended before her wedding and lived her life alone in a big house that went to ruin and she never changed her wedding dress.
I suggest that you watch the film because Magwitch, the escaped prisoner, destined for a life 'down-under' meets Pip in the churchyard on the Cooling marshes, but he is recaptured and deported. (I have previously posted a pic of the Cooling Church). Magwitch reappears many years later after he has made some money down-under. Miss Havisham dies when her filthy big, vermin infested house burns down.
That puts a two hour film and a lengthy book into a few words. Good Luck.
Great pictures. In the Netherlands is the town Deventer where in decembre a weekend is where local people are dressed in the cloths from the dickens era. A lot of spectators are attending the town to see it. Even the catering has been adjusted. It is a pity i have no decent pictures of this event.
