The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)

Friday 21st February 2020 - Thursday 27th February 2020

Dir. Armando Iannucci, UK, 2019, 120 mins. Cast. Dev Patel, Ben Whishaw, Hugh Laurie, Tilda Swinton, Peter Capaldi.

Adapting one of Charles Dickens’ most beloved characters, this Victorian-set epic feels very modern, fresh and, quite frankly, hilarious. Following Copperfield from early youth through to middle age, the story traces his social awakening, charting huge personal ups and downs as he witnesses the best and worst of humanity. Dickens’ ‘favourite child’ amongst his works, the plot also tackles social injustice in many forms – a lack of protection for children, poor industrial conditions for the working class, and wealth inequality. So, who better to tackle this tale than Iannucci, the genius behind The Thick of It, In the Loop and The Death of Stalin. Humorous, busy, bustling and bursting with colour and energy, this is a Dickens reworking unlike any you’ve seen on the screen.
