The Personal History of David Copperfield

1h 59m Comedy, Drama 2020

AroView: A modern take on the Charles Dickens classic about the young orphan who triumphs over adversity in Victorian England. Puts a refreshing spin on stuffy period drama conventions, with actor Dev Patel never better in the role of David Copperfield.

From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

“A fleet-footed and boisterously enjoyable Dickens adaptation that breathes new life into a well-worn story.” ~ Matt Maytum, Total Film.
