Synopsis

ckens’ Old Curiosity Shop is a startling investigation into the life of greed and pursuit of wealth in the days of old. Fourteen year-old orphan Nell Trent (Sally Walsh) lives with her loving grandfather (Oscar® winner Sir Peter Ustinov, Spartacus) in his world of odds and ends, a Curiosity Shop filled with remnants of the past. But in his wayward attempt to secure her financial future he has developed a secret gambling addiction fed by sundry high-interest loans from the unscrupulous and malevolent Daniel Quilp (Oscar® nominee Tom Courtenay, The Dresser).

Fully intending to collect on his investment Quilp angles in on the family, seizing the shop and its many assets, forcing Nell and her grandfather to flee for their lives and forge a desperate odyssey through the English countryside with their money hungry nemesis on their trail.
 
Also featuring James Fox (Sherlock Holmes) and from the Emmy® Award winning producer of Tin Man and The 10th Kingdom, The Old Curiosity Shop is a stunning step back in time to an age of darkness, deceit and Dickens
