The Old Curiosity Shop was pretty decent - not bad by any means, but not a fantastic Dickens adaptation. I loved the music (which sounded familiar, but I just can’t place it - anyone know it? It really reminded me of the lullaby from Pan’s Labyrinth), and the moodiness of the movie.

As happens, there was clearly as a lot of cut plot (the movie is only 90 minutes long), and though it’s very obvious that there are several severely truncated plotlines, everything came together well enough by the end. Overall, not a bad adaptation, but nothing to get too upset over skipping to watch the Oscars.
