Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham

Posted on November 04, 2011

Darlings, here’s your pretty for the day. Faded, shredded, and tea-stained, but still pretty, here’s the first look at Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham in “Great Expectations,” directed by Mike Newell. The casting could not be more perfect (even if she does seem a bit young and not nearly skeletal enough) and the costume, designed by Beatrix Aruna Pasztor, is stunning. Enjoy, darlings. Or, for an alternate form of fun, rage against how she’s horribly miscast and Dickens would rise out of his grave to protest if he could. Win-win, darlings!
