Gwyneth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke play the young lovers in the film, which took Dickens' story from early 19th century London and set it in late 20th century New York City. In keeping with the update, the film changed several of the main characters' names (Pip became Finn, Magwitch the criminal became Arthur Lustig, and Miss Havisham became Ms. Dinsmoor). Despite the name changes, the story was unmistakably Dickens'.
