The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Personal History of David Copperfield is a gorgeous, charming and whimsical take on Charles Dickins famous character that tells the story of the life of David Copperfield his adventures and the web of friends and enemies he meets along his way. Directed by Armando Iannucci and starring a veritable feast of British actors, the film succeeds due to its love and reinvention of  the original Dickens text… gloriously surreal, wonderful performed and stunning to look at.  

Best Bit: The superb cast
