Gwyneth Paltrow is absolutely stunning and plays her role perfectly.But when a mysterious benefactor greenlights the man to make his dreams come true, everything done has the ultimate goal of making Estella fall in love with him...I have never read Dickens' "Great Expectations," but I can tell you that this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. This is not a b-movie, a cheesy remake, or even a remake. Ethan Hawk is amazing, he really is a top notch actor.The convict hides on a buoy and the police tow Finn back to land.The next day, Finn sees on the news that the convict was a mobster named Arthur Lustig who had escaped from death row, but has now been recaptured.
