The Personal History Of David Copperfield: Five Reasons Why It's A Must See

An avid Dickens fan, Armando Iannucci (the award-winning writer/director of The Thick of It, In the Loop, Veep and The Death of Stalin) adapts here, alongside frequent collaborator Simon Blackwell, employing his comedic mastery and vivid characterizations to bring to life one of Dickens' most cherished characters in 'The Personal History Of David Copperfield'. 

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 David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

Hmmmmm

Reviewer: GeeGeeDate: 2020-01-25

This is a good film, but not quite the uproarious fun the trailers will have you believe. Really strong acting from the cast, but it’s perhaps a little pedestrian at times.

Disappointing

Reviewer: Peter SootyDate: 2020-01-24

I was really looking forward to this after watching the trailer. Marvellous cast, period setting & acting spoilt by an unfunny script and some peculiar casting which confuses.

Brilliant

Reviewer: Ollie1Date: 2020-01-24

Amazing cast, funny script, heartwarming story. Well worth the watch. 5 stars.
