The 2002 film version of Nicholas Nickleby is our May Literary Flick, and will be shown on Tuesday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m.
After the death of their father leaves them penniless, Nicholas and his sister Kate travel with their mother to London to seek help from their cold-hearted Uncle Ralph. Ralph's only intentions are to separate the family and exploit them. Nicholas is sent to a boarding school run by the cruel, abusive and horridly entertaining Wackford Squeers and his wife.
Eventually, Nicholas runs away with schoolmate Smike, and the two set off to reunite the Nickleby family. Once home, he meets a young woman, Madeline Bray, and has to protect her and his sister from the insidious scheming of his Uncle Ralph.
Join us at 6:30 for a star-studded cast* of Dickens' finest! As always, we'll be serving free popcorn, too!
