Rate this:
A re-imagining of 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 and Simon Blackwell lend their wry, yet heart-filled storytelling style to revisiting Dickens’ iconic hero on his quirky journey from impoverished orphan to burgeoning writer in Victorian England.
"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
"A fast-moving yarn, sometimes hilarious and always entertaining."--Hollywood Reporter
"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)
