The Personal History Of David Copperfield (PG) 119mins


Armando Iannucci (the award-winning writer/director of The Thick of It, In the Loop and The Death of Stalin) employs his comedic mastery to put a fresh, funny, and utterly charming spin on this Dickens classic. 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 he sets out to be a writer, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

Starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Peter Capaldi, Gwendoline Christie, Hugh Laurie, Paul Whitehouse, Aneurin Barnard and Armando Iannucci.

‘wonderfully entertaining’ *****Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘an unbridled joy’ ****Daily Mail

‘a sublime pleasure’ ****The Times

'A fleet-footed, boisterously enjoyable Dickens adap that breathes new life into a well-worn story. A winning Dev Patel leads a highly amusing cast' ****Total Film

'terrifically likable...bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying' ****The Guardian

'Armando Iannucci's rollicking farce keeps the spirit of Dickens intact...and there is something wonderfully unexpected – and perhaps even subversive – in responding to our fraught times with a tale in which wit and goodness win through in the end.' ****The Telegraph

'Iannucci has made his most human film, an attempt to find something helpful, funny and above all positive to help us to navigate the sorry state of Britain of today' ****The Times

'a bright and jaunty corrective to the dour and stuffy Dickens adaptations that have come before' Variety
