Great Expectations Movie Vs Biddy

197 Words1 Page
Out of all the major changes from the book to the movie, the most noticeable was the number of characters that were in the book, but left out of the movie. One of those minor characters that was Biddy. Although Biddy was a great character to read, she was not really necessary in the movie. Her character never affected the story line in the book, so not adding her into the movie, although sad, was a good move on the director's part. If Biddy was added to the cast, it could have ruined the feel of the movie. In the movie Pip confided in Joe at the forge, befriended Herbert in London, had a love interest in Estella, and was the enemy of Orlick and Drummel. Adding Biddy to that list would cause the characters relationships to Pip to be repetitive.
