Today marks (what would have been) Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday. To celebrate the great man and his collection of outstanding work we have discounted a massive selection of his written work and screen adaptations.
Here are some our favourites:
Buy Disney's A Christmas Carol (Blu-Ray + DVD) for only £7.99
Probably one of the most creative takes on a Dickens novel, Disney’s 2009 animated adaptation offers it’s own version of one of the authors most famous stories. Utilising the latest animation and 3D technology this movie is undeniably beautiful and haunting at the same time. With fine voice acting provided from Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman & Colin Firth, this is surely going to become a Christmas animation classic.
Buy Nicholas Nickleby for only £3.99
Nicholas Nickleby is renowned to be one of Dickens’ more complicated novels, whilst there have been many screen adaptations of this famous story our favourite has to be the 2002 version by Douglas McGrath. This tale of vengeance and human emotion is condensed, yet manages to stay true to the original novel. Featuring an all-star cast including Christopher Plummer & Jim Broadbent to name but a few.
Buy Oliver! (1968) for only £4.99
Winner of 6 Academy Awards, this 1968 musical adaptation of Dickens’ Oliver Twist is a definite classic. Whether you are a fan of musicals or not and regardless of age most people will know at least one song from this movie. “Consider Yourself” & “You’ve Got To Pick A Pocket Or Two” being personal can’t-help-yourself sing-a-long favourites.
