The Personal History of David Copperfield

The Personal History of David Copperfield puts a fresh, funny, and utterly charming spin on Charles Dickens’ classic, proving some stories truly are timeless. All his life, from birth to childhood, adolescence to adulthood, the kind-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by friendship, evil, poverty and wealth, and meets a long list of outstanding characters in Victorian England. David wants to be a writer, and it turns out his search for family, friends, romance and status is the most captivating story of all. Director Armando Iannucci, the master of satire, has made films like The Death of Stalin and the series Veep, and this film keeps the distinctive humor he is known for, with an added layer of warmth.
