A refreshingly modern spin on a Victorian tale.

From master satirist Armando Iannucci (The Death of Stalin) comes The Personal History of David Copperfield, a hilarious and charming take on one of Dickens' best-loved novels. From adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield (Dev Patel) is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth. As he finds his way through life, he comes across an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. With a wealth of British talent including Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw and Paul Whitehouse, Iannucci puts a refreshingly modern spin on this Victorian tale.

Director: Armando Iannucci
Cast: Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Gwendoline Christie, Hugh Laurie, Aneurin Barnard.
Runnning time: 1 hour 59 minutes
