      Nicholas Nickleby” starring Charlie Hunnam is a fairly decent adaptation of Charles Dickens’s novel, although a lot has been left out due to time constraints. Mini-series work much better to translate Dickens’s 800-900 pages long masterpieces to the screen.

      Charlie Hunnam plays the 18 year old Nicholas, a


      young man left with little means to support his mother and sister after his father’s death.

      He thinks it was very irresponsible of his brother to die in poverty and throw his family on him.

      Reluctantly, Ralph agrees to help.

      He finds Nicholas a job of a teacher at a boy’s boarding school, and also gives a place to live for Nicholas’s mother and ...

      The family is very grateful; Nicholas is determined to do his best.

      However, when he sees what the school is like and how terribly the boys are abused by the schoolmaster Squeers, he can’t help it - he ends up stepping in to protect a boy, which

      results into a fight with the schoolmaster.

      Nicholas beats him up and flees, having taken the boy with him.

      Uncle Ralph, of course, hears the schoolmaster’s version of the story where Nicholas is portrayed as a monster.

      This strains the relationship between the uncle and the nephew even more.
