The Old Curiosity Shop (2007 film)

The Old Curiosity Shop is a British television film adapted from the Charles Dickens's novel The Old Curiosity Shop.[1] It stars Irish actress Sophie Vavasseur as Nell Trent, with Derek Jacobi as her grandfather, Toby Jones as Quilp and George MacKay as Nell's friend, Kit. It was broadcast on 26 December 2007 on ITV. The adaptation is in general very faithful to the novel. The most major changes are the deletion of Garlands and their household and the identity of the Single Gentleman (here called Jacob) who is changed from Grandfather's brother to his estranged son and Nell's father.
