The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)

The Personal History of David Copperfield

Directed by Armando Iannucci

Cast includes Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Gwendoline Christie, Hugh Laurie, Aneurin Barnard

Duration: 129 mins

From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

The Personal History of David Copperfield re-imagines Charles Dickens' classic ode to grit and perseverance through the comedic lens of its award-winning film makers - giving the Dickensian tale new life for a cosmopolitan age with a diverse ensemble cast of stage and screen actors from across the world. Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Armando Iannucci (In the Loop, The Death of Stalin) and Simon Blackwell (In the Loop) lend their wry, yet heart-filled storytelling style to revisiting Dickens' iconic hero on this quirky journey from impoverished orphan to burgeoning writer.

A vivacious adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, this is as wide-eyed and open-hearted as they come. - Independent
