Director: Armando Iannucci
In cinemas

Armando Iannucci's adaptation of the Dickens classic, starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Gwendoline Christie and Hugh Laurie.

A fresh and distinctive take on Charles Dickens’ semi-autobiographical masterpiece, The Personal History Of David Copperfield, set in the 1840’s, chronicles the life of its iconic title character (played by Dev Patel) 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.
