“The goal is to approach film making in a more inclusive, socially conscious and financially responsible way than we’ve seen and experienced in the past.”
Hugh Laurie (House) stars as Mr. Watts in Andrew Adamson’s (Chronicles of Narnia, Shrek) adaptation of the prize winning novel, MR. PIP.
Celebrating the timeless power of storytelling, MR PIP unites the stirring tale of a young girl’s quest for hope with a Charles Dickens classic. Thirteen-year-old Matilda is coming of age on a copper-rich tropical island torn apart by war. Almost everyone, including her father, has left to find work or escape danger. Among those few who remain is the mysterious Mr. Watts, the island’s sole remaining white man, who begins to read GREAT EXPECTATIONS aloud to students.
But in a ravaged place where daily survival is the only objective, fiction can be a dangerous thing and it’s only a matter of time before the soldiers are searching for the fictional Pip.
For Matilda the story offers an escape from their brutal reality, while instilling the strength to endure in a place where nothing is certain. Ultimately it’s the power of the imagination that triumphs.
