David Copperfield

The Personal History of David Copperfield is the much-anticipated new film from master satirist Armando Iannucci (BBC’s The Thick of It, The Death of Stalin), with Dev Patel giving a fantastic performance as the titular hero. This hilarious take on one of Dickens’ best-loved novels, a semi-autobiographical tale following Copperfield’s vivid life from early youth through to middle age, is rounded out by a stellar ensemble cast including Ben Whishaw, Hugh Laurie, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Peter Capaldi, Rosalind Eleazar and Tilda Swinton.

“…everything rattles and zings like a pinball machine, and it’s a bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying experience. **** 4 stars” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
