Nicholas Nickleby - Charles Dickens, Mark Ford

I dislike Dickens. His books are popular and it is usually about persons who act out cruelly against the poor and the powerless.


As in any story world, the poor and the powerless get their strength for being good and then overcome the cruelty act from other people. 


That's don't happen in real life. Most people are indifference. Some are cruel but not that obvious. And even if strong in characters, without luck, poor people continue to suffer. 


No. I dislike this book, the story,  but the cast of this version of the movie is pretty good. 


OK. It wasn't that bad. But really couldn't stand bad persons act out cruelty without much motivation.
