I love the literal tagline since Mr. Pip really is about an English man who does give the natives Great Expectations-- copies of the Charles Dickens novel that is.
If you think this is an episode of House (Laurie's last great gig) going on vacation and getting all cynical and cruelly pranking the native children, you might be off by a degree of separation or two. Laurie's Mr Pip (affectionately named by the natives for the title character in Dickens novel) gets involved with the building of a school house for the children while a civil war rages around him and them.
poster is just average but gets props for making Laurie's eyes bluer
than the bluest blue and for sporting a conga line of natives
reflecting the various themes: studious solitude, joyful awakening, the
plight of refugees and the terrors of war.
Mr Pip is based on the Lloyd Jones novel and directed by Andrew Adamson who is responsible for the first two The Chronicles of Narnia and Shrek films.
