DIRECTOR Armando Iannucci
CAST Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Morfydd Clark
Armando Iannucci brings a wonderful comic exuberance to his freewheeling, star-studded adaptation of Charles Dickens’s much-loved novel.
This glorious adaptation of one of Charles Dickens’ most loved novels exudes energy and humour. David Copperfield (Dev Patel) is lucky to be raised by a loving mother. But when she weds, David finds himself being pushed from pillar to post including an oppressive boarding school and the home of his eccentric aunt Betsey Trotwood (Tilda Swinton). With this story of immense compassion, imagination and optimism, Iannucci has produced an irresistible film.
(2019 UK / USA 119 mins)
Armando Iannucci brings a wonderful comic exuberance to his freewheeling adaptation of a novel that Charles Dickens considered his favourite child. The autobiographical account of an author’s formative years unfolds in a giddy swirl of outlandish incident and indelible characters. Often riotously funny, it never loses sight of the underlying central themes of poverty, class, the tonic of compassion and the need for community. A treat for Dickens fans, The Personal History Of David Copperfield is so alive and immediate that it should also connect with an audience who would never dream of tackling a weighty 19th century tome.
