A charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score, makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.
I love dev patel as an actor and I love Dickens, however, when I watch a movie, I like to feel as though I can believe what I see on the screen and I just find it absolutely ridiculous to cast actors who quite blatantly would not have looked that way at the time. I walked out of teh showing as it makes no sense for a period piece set in the early 2th century in london and especially as Dickens wrote David Copperfiled as a semi-autobiographical work. The BBC do this all the time and it really ruins the enjoyment for me.
