Review by Jamie Bell (posted on 7-Jul-2007)

An absolutely outstanding movie! Jamie Bell played the disfigured son of a wealthy man who turned his back on his own son and his brother's children. Bell's character was abused in an orphange, but rescued by Nicholas Nickelby. A tender and inspiring movie that teaches that family isn't just about whom you share blood with, but rather who you would give your blood for.
