The End of Great Expectations

I find it ironic that the ending of all the video versions of this great novel come to different conclusions. For example, this BBC version ends with the two deciding to stay together and remain friends, with their love unrequited and with Estella staying in the house during renovations, while in the novel they decide to remain friends apart both going their own way in life. There are other endings that leave the story without closure so the audience can speculate on their situation in the end. I find the book’s ending honestly the most realistic.
