A teenage girl and her grandfather lose everything to a maniacal moneylender and flee his relentless pursuit. The saga of Little Nell, Grandfather and their tormentor, Daniel Quilp, is one of Charles Dickens’ most heartrending tales. Derek Jacobi (“I, Claudius”) stars as Grandfather, with Sophie Vavasseur (“Northanger Abbey”) as Nell and Toby Jones (Frost/Nixon) as Quilp. The Dickensian cast also includes Gina McKee (“The Forsyte Saga”) as the brains behind Quilp’s shady law firm.
