The Personal History of David Copperfield
Opens Aug 28, 2020
The Personal History of David Copperfield re-imagines Charles Dickens' classic ode to grit and perseverance through the comedic lens of its award-winning filmmakers — giving the Dickensian tale new life for a cosmopolitan age with a diverse ensemble cast of stage and screen actors from across the world. Armando Iannucci (The Death of Stalin, HBO's Veep) lends his wry, yet heart-filled storytelling style to revisiting Dickens' iconic hero on his journey from impoverished orphan to burgeoning writer in Victorian England.
"A vivacious adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, this is as wide-eyed and open-hearted as they come."
-Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)
"Iannucci has made his most human film, an attempt to find something helpful, funny and above all positive to help us to navigate the sorry state of Britain of today."
-Damon Wise, Times (UK)
"A fast-moving yarn, sometimes hilarious and always entertaining."
-John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
