The Personal History of David Copperfield

Saturday 29th February 11:00 AM


Our family film this year is a classic tale, brilliantly interpreted by one of the country's leading satirists and backed up by a stellar ensemble cast. David Copperfield is a sheer unalloyed joy.

Dev Patel is excellent in the lead role in this fast-paced account of Copperfield's young life, with memorable encounters with, amongst others, Tilda Swinton, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw and Hugh Laurie.

“Everything rattles and zings like a pinball machine, and it’s a bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying experience.”

Peter Bradshaw

“A breezy, brilliant treat. ... remarkably optimistic and buoyant, telling a story as joyously relevant as it was a century-and-a-half ago.”

John Nugent, Empire Magazine

“A vivacious adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, this is as wide-eyed and open-hearted as they come.”

Clarisse Loughrey, Independent
