If there is one writer adapted more so than Shakespeare, it’s Dickens. From Oliver to Scrooge, the acclaimed author has had many movies, TV shows, and musicals based on his work. Now it’s time for another outing for David Copperfield.
Directed by Armando Iannucci, the film is the ultimate rags to riches tale of a young man trying to make it in Victorian London. The film starts Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Peter Capaldi, and Peter Bradshaw.
The Personal History of David Copperfield looks to be an adventurous and joyous piece, steered by the incredible Oscar-nominated Dev Patel. We’re excited to see this, are you?
The Personal History of David Copperfield kicks off BFI London Film Festival tonight.
It’s on general release in January.
