The Personal History of David Copperfield re-imagines 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. 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.

“Crafting a don't-miss movie out of Charles Dickens' 1850 doorstop of a novel, Amando Inannicci and a sublime cast, led by a never-better Dev Patel, add a blast of mad, modern irreverence that is totally irresistible.”

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

“The new film adaptation, co-written by Iannucci and Simon Blackwell, takes that human energy as its lifting-off point, and is simply too faithful, rich, and bright to be dimmed by the circumstances of its release.” Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic.
