The Personal History of David Copperfield (DVD)DVD - 2020 | Widescreen ed
"A fast-moving yarn, sometimes hilarious and always entertaining."--Hollywood Reporter
"Like some kind of long-lost Monty Python sketch, Iannucci's revisionist "David Copperfield" alternates between intellect and absurdity, blending high- and lowbrow elements."--Variety
"The meta-fiction may be overdone, but that and the director's feeling for tone create the expansive atmosphere in which a talented multiracial cast lead by Dev Patel can master everything from pure melodrama to high comedy."--Globe and Mail (UK)

Filmmaker Armando Iannucci retells Charles Dickens’ novel in a refreshing, vibrant, whimsical, utterly charming and connective way. The cast is diverse and inclusive, with Dev Patel playing David Copperfield. I’ve never had so much fun watching a Dickensian adaptation. Recommended by Sharon.
