“Dev Patel gives a career best performance as the titular character of Armando Iannucci’s freewheeling Dickens adaptation” – Screen Daily
Armando Ianucci (The Death of Stalin) brings a fresh and distinctive take of Charles Dickens’ semi-autobiographical masterpiece to the screen in this stellar adaptation, starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton and Ben Whishaw.
The Personal History of David Copperfield, set in the 1840s, chronicles the life of its iconic title character as he navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it. From his unhappy childhood to the discovery of his gift as a storyteller and writer, David’s journey is by turns hilarious and tragic, but always full of life, colour and humanity.
Dir: Armando Iannucci
Cast: Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton
