The Personal History of David Copperfield

Director Armando Iannucci (The Death of Stalin, BFF17) brings his sardonic wit – and a stellar cast of Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie and Ben Whishaw – to Charles Dickens' classic autobiographical novel. Direct from Opening Night at the London Film Festival, this thrillingly realised adaptation of Dickens’ personal and optimistic narrative is gloriously entertaining. Careening through 19th century England, it follows its hero from one unlikely situation to the next.
