The Personal History Of David Copperfield (PG)
The Personal History of David Copperfield | 2019|UK/USA
Director: Armando Iannucci
Starring: Dev Patel, Hugh Laurie, Tilda Swinton
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens.
You may or may not have read the book, you may or may not have seen TV adaptations, but this is certainly a distinctive adaptation written and directed by Armando Iannucci. Feverishly paced, eccentric, wonderfully strange, a modern take on Dickens’ semi-autobiographical story, packed with cameo performances, with a moving and infectiously enjoyable performance by Dev Patel in the title role. It is Dickens made afresh due to a healthy exuberance and a breezy, colour-blind cast including Peter Capaldi as a sympathetic Mr Micawber and Ben Whishaw as Uriah Heep.
