Trailer for Hugh Laurie in Mr Pip

Trailer for Hugh Laurie in Mr Pip

New Zealand writer/director Andrew Adamson has done it again, judging by the trailer for his new film Mr Pip (starring Hugh Laurie), this could be a really good film.

After getting bored of House and remembering Hugh Laurie for his better roles in Black Adder and A Bit of Fry and Laurie, I keep forgetting how good an actor he is, the man has some serious acting chops!

Have a look at the trailer and let me know what you think

Synopsis

In 1991, a war over a copper mining in the South Pacific tore the island of Bougainville apart. In 14 year-old Matilda’s tiny village, the reclusive “Popeye” (Hugh Laurie) offers the children escape into Dickens’ “Great Expectations.” But on an island at war, fiction can have dangerous consequences.
