But in the new movie, writer-director Douglas McGrath manages to tell it all in minutes, without the story ever seeming rushed or curtailed.
Instead, the impression is one of abundance: It's a generous tale, told through big performances by a talented cast.
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone awarded the film three out of a possible four stars and commented, "Christopher Plummer steals the show without resorting to camp as Nicholas' wounded and wounding Uncle Ralph.
It's a great performance and a reminder of Dickens' grandeur. This CliffsNotes of a film, though lively fun, only hints at that.
No matter. I'll take the hint. In Variety , David Rooney described the film as "a delightful experience.
The sacrifices of condensing Dickens' massive novel to standard feature length are discernible, especially in the title character's discovery of love.
But while it's told in conventional fashion, the heart of this tale of a young man's quest to rescue his family from villainy and misfortune is lovingly rendered by a mostly superlative cast and with an entertaining balance of humor and pathos.
McGrath's approach is old-fashioned but appealing, using a novelistic style that relies on voiceover to get through much of the initial exposition.
His script captures the scope, humor and compassion of Dickens' novel and drives the picaresque story along at a lively clip.
The film was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. It received the National Board of Review Award for Best Cast , and Romola Garai was nominated for the Jameson People's Choice Award for Best European Actress at the European Film Awards.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Among other things, Nicholas wants to find out what Squeers is going to tell his uncle. Meanwhile, Kate and her mother are forced by Ralph to move out of their lodgings in the house of the kindly portrait painter Miss LaCreevy and into a cold and draughty house Ralph owns in a London slum.
Ralph finds employment for Kate working for a fashionable milliner, Madame Mantalini. Her husband, Mr Mantalini, is a gigolo who depends on his significantly older wife to supply his extravagant tastes, and offends Kate by leering at her.
Kate proves initially clumsy at her job, which endears her to the head of the showroom, Miss Knag, a vain and foolish woman who uses Kate to make herself look better.
This backfires when a client prefers to be served by the young and pretty Kate rather than the ageing Miss Knag. Kate is blamed for the insult, and as a result, Kate is ostracised by the other milliners and left friendless.
Nicholas seeks out the aid of Newman Noggs, who shows him a letter that Fanny Squeers has written to Ralph. It viciously exaggerates the events of the beating and slanders Nicholas.
They suspect Ralph secretly knows the truth, but is latching onto Fanny's account to further persecute Nicholas. Noggs tells Nicholas, who is intent on confronting his uncle, that Ralph is out of town and advises him to find a job.
Nicholas goes to an employment office, where he encounters a strikingly beautiful girl. His search for employment fails, and he is about to give up when Noggs offers him the meagre position of French teacher to the children of his neighbours, the Kenwigs family, and Nicholas is hired under the assumed name of "Johnson" to teach the children French.
Ralph asks Kate to attend a dinner he is hosting for some business associates. When she arrives she discovers she is the only woman in attendance, and it becomes clear Ralph is using her as bait to entice the foolish nobleman Lord Frederick Verisopht to do business with him.
The other guests include Verisopht's mentor and friend, the disreputable nobleman Sir Mulberry Hawk, who humiliates Kate at dinner by making her the subject of an offensive bet.
She flees the table, but is later accosted by Hawk. He attempts to force himself on her but is stopped by Ralph. Ralph shows some unexpected tenderness towards Kate but insinuates that he will withdraw his financial help if she tells her mother about what happened.
The next day, Nicholas discovers that his uncle has returned. He visits his mother and sister just as Ralph is reading them Fanny Squeers' letter and slandering Nicholas.
He confronts his uncle, who vows to give no financial assistance to the Nicklebys as long as Nicholas stays with them.
His hand forced, Nicholas agrees to leave London, but warns Ralph that a day of reckoning will one day come between them.
The next morning, Nicholas and Smike travel towards Portsmouth with the intention of becoming sailors. At an inn, they encounter the theatrical manager Vincent Crummles, who hires Nicholas still going under the name of Johnson on sight.
Nicholas is the new juvenile lead, and also playwright, with the task of adapting French tragedies into English and then modifying them for the troupe's minimal dramatic abilities.
Nicholas and Smike join the acting company and are warmly received by the troupe, which includes Crummles's formidable wife, their daughter, "The Infant Phenomenon", and many other eccentric and melodramatic thespians.
Nicholas and Smike make their debuts in Romeo and Juliet , as Romeo and the Apothecary respectively, and are met with great acclaim from the provincial audiences.
Nicholas enjoys a flirtation with his Juliet, the lovely Miss Snevellici. Back in London, Mr Mantalini's reckless spending has bankrupted his wife.
Madame Mantalini is forced to sell her business to Miss Knag, whose first order of business is to fire Kate.
She finds employment as the companion of the social-climbing Mrs Wittiterly. Meanwhile, Sir Mulberry Hawk begins a plot to humiliate Kate for refusing his advances.
He uses Lord Frederick, who is infatuated with her, to discover where she lives from Ralph. He is about to succeed in this plot when Mrs. Nickleby enters Ralph's office, and the two rakes switch their attentions from Kate's uncle to her mother, successfully worming their way into Mrs Nickleby's company and gaining access to the Wittiterly house.
I have a titular affinity with this novel since it incorporates many common misspellings of my surname: Nicols, Nichols, Nickles, Nicholas, Nicolls and once Amber Juliana Swami.
Enough said. Penguin Classics. I was a devoted Penguin man for most of my life until OUP redesigned their books in with the exquisite designs seen here: a simple white strip with red and black text over the delightfully colourful cover images, beautiful!
Penguin texts still boast better translations and notations, alas, so style over substance? View all 14 comments. One common criticism of The Pickwick Papers is that it has no plot.
This novel is the antithesis of Pickwick , it has too much plot. At pages in length this is the largest book that I have ever read, and it really felt like it.
Dickens is the master of setting and characterisation. However, sometimes he can get so caught up in describing the mood and the presence of a location that half the chapter is gone before any dialogue is even uttered.
This novel contains, in my opinion, one of Dicken One common criticism of The Pickwick Papers is that it has no plot. This novel contains, in my opinion, one of Dicken's most tragic characters, Smike.
Smike will break your heart ad infinitum. There's lots of evil and mean characters in here that are very boo hiss which is just what we want and of course our hero Nicholas is flawless.

Do not read if you fear them. I think that this is the most satisfying of Dickens's novels. But then, I say that about all of his novels, after each re-read.
Except for Martin Chuzzlewit. The most satisfying scene: It was one of the brimstone-and-treacle mornings, and Mrs.
Squeers had entered school according to custom with the large bowl and spoon, follo Spoilers. Squeers had entered school according to custom with the large bowl and spoon, followed by Miss Squeers and the amiable Wackford: who during his father's absence, had taken upon himself such minor branches of the executive as kicking the pupils with his nailed boots, pulling the hair of some of the smaller boys, pinching the others in aggravating places, and rendering himself in various similar ways a great comfort and happiness to his mother.
Their entrance, whether by premeditation or a simultaneous impulse, was the signal of revolt. While one detachment rushed to the door and locked it, and another mounted the desks and forms, the stoutest and consequently the newest boy seized the cane, and, confronting Mrs.

Before that estimable lady could recover herself, or offer the slightest retaliation, she was forced into a kneeling posture by a crowd of shouting tormentors, and compelled to swallow a spoonful of the odious mixture, rendered more than usually savoury by the immersion in the bowl of Master Wackford's head, whose ducking was entrusted to another rebel.

The energetic young Dickens, probably overwhelmed with the success of his Sketches and his first two novels, was apparently determined to make the most of this old maxim so that he began his work on Nicholas Nickleby when he had not even finished the adventures of his milksop of a hero Oliver Twist.
And how different in tone Nickleby is from Twist! Dickens seems to have regained the witty exuberance of Pickwick Papers, for which, like the picaresque character of the plot, he was indebted to the masters of the 18th century, such as Henry Fielding or Tobias Smollett.
If you are interested in a well-contrived plot, Nicholas Nickleby will surely disappoint you because Dickens does not seem to have given a lot of thought to how his hero might solve the conflicts awaiting him.
One chapter gives a daring and lucid satire on selfish politicians, others decry the social pretensions of the would-be upper class Wititterlies.
Yet at the same time there is also — to a lesser degree — the social commitment of Oliver Twist when Dickens tries to denounce the infamous Yorkshire schools, where numbers of unwanted children were mistreated in ways that were shameful for every civilized society.
Pretty wicious that for a child of six! Squeers was so much moved by the contemplation of this hardened nature in one so young, that he angrily put up the letter, and sought, in a new train of ideas, a subject of consolation.
The best author's best book ever-read it slowly as you would a fine wine. Charles Dickens paints a wide panorama in this story of familial relationships and how formative they are to an individual's physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.
He effectively illustrates just how very important a parent's love and support is to a child. Charles Dickens was always the champion for the dow Family Charles Dickens was always the champion for the down-trodden.
In Nicholas Nickleby , he attacks boarding schools and the lack of regulations over boarding schools through his entertaining and probably partially truthful hyperbole of Mr.
Squeers and his boarding school at Dothebys Hall. Dickens also takes on money-lenders and usurers who were a major cause of the plight of those facing debtor's prison.
Dickens wrote about what he knew and his life experiences, and when he was young, his father was thrown into debtor's prison, which caused young Charles to go to work in a blacking factory to help support his family.
I personally did not mind the lack of character development. When taken as a whole, Dickens' crew of characters in this story and the wide swath of their personalities provided a thorough view of humanity for his readers.
Nicholas Nickleby is a very enjoyable story throughout. Compared to other stories, Bleak House comes to mind , Nicholas Nickleby is much more linear.
This being only Dickens' 3rd novel, I am of the opinion that the quality of his story-telling was always there. What I find had changed during his literary career was the complication of his plots and the depth of his themes.
He was always a wonderful story-teller, and my enjoyment of this story never waned for all pages. My favorite parts were scenes with the Yorkshireman, John Browdie.
I loved how Dickens wrote Browdie's Yorkshire accent, it was as fun and challenging to read as it is to try to decipher it while listening to it.
John Browdie's big, garrulous personality shined through in this book. Nicholas Nickleby has single-handedly gotten my reading year back on track.
Not, that it's been a bad reading year so far, but until I read this, it has just been kind of a "blah" reading year. Thankfully, that has changed with this wonderful and memorable story!
Although a bit wordy and long-winded at times, I have not found his equal in irony and wit. There is an underlying sarcasm in these books that make them a joy to read.
I know that sounds incongruous, but to me, it just is. This story of a boy and his sister, who are left by a loving but destitute father, demonstrates the power of providence in the lives of those good and honest souls faced with the evil deeds of those who mean them harm.
God bless him. And I love the way he wrapped it all up in the end. Excellent work of fiction. This was an audiobook, and I can't fail to mention Simon Vance, who, as usual did a brilliant narration of the characters.
He is truly gifted in this talent. Because of their length, you could probably say the same about any of Dickens' novels, but somehow this story of two young people going out for the first time to travel through the world on their own albeit by necessity and not by choice and meeting all kinds of interesting and eccentric characters had a particularly happy resonance with the circumstances.
I still have a tendency to think of Nicholas and Kate, Smike and the Cheeryble Brothers, and of course the colorful Crummles touring theatre troupe, as actual people - they were such great travelling companions!
To quote the redoubtable Mrs Crummles, "It was too, too tremendous! View 1 comment. Dec 29, Vicky rated it it was ok Shelves: classics.
I couldn't quite bring myself to give just one star to a master of English fiction, but honestly, this book is Dickens at his worst: maudlin, melodramatic, and almost pathological in its hysterical demonization of the villains.

The good characters are gooily good, the bad ones lack not only any redeeming feature but any plausible motivation, and we are encouraged to relish their downfall with childish glee.
There are a few refreshing breezes of Dickensian humor -- the interlude in which Nicholas is employed by a provincial theater company is delightful -- but mostly it's angels and demons all the way, and very poor stuff it is.
Oct 03, F. Wackford Squeers! Indeed, in my memory of this book — which I last read some fifteen years ago — Wackford Squeers featured as one of the dominant figures.
So why does he linger so long in the mind? I think Wackford Squeers! As such the scenes in the Yorkshire schoolhouse still have incredible power: Dickens lets loose his full moral fury, but combines it with a gleeful relish at the brutal suffering of these hard beaten boys.
Wackford Squeers will probably always be with us. However the greatest shame of our askew collective memory of this book, is that the main villain should be better remembered.
He is a superbly realised character, a magnificent brooding presence with more space to grow into than Scrooge ever had. The lead character I find particularly interesting as well.
Sometimes Dickens can make the mistake of painting his heroes as too good to be true see Twist, Oliver. He starts off haughty and arrogant and never really loses that.
That this book works so well, with a difficult hero and a bumper crop of villains, is testament to the incredible whirlwind skills of the young Dickens.
The way he grabs these elements — be they schoolrooms or provincial theatres or swindles concerning wills or dotty mothers — and makes them into a coherent whole with laughs, drama and suspense along the way is really quite magnificent.
I was particularly interested in the way Dickens crowbars his more personal concerns into the text. There was no copyright law in his day, an author would be paid on first publication but after that had little control.
Any other publisher could knock out truncated versions of the book, or a theatrical manager stage unapproved adaptations. This is the great inimitable whirlwind of Charles Dickens himself, speaking out against those who would rip him off.
No doubt he already knew he had a masterpiece on his hands and wanted to do all he could to protect it.
And even if in the short term he failed, we can still feel the hairs rise on the back of our necks when we hear his voice speak out so clearly from this brilliant, brilliant book.
