The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)

Monday 29th June 2020


COVID-19 UPDATE: this screening has been suspended due to COVID 19. We hope that we will be able to restart again before the end of June, so please check back or join our mailing list.

The Personal History of David Copperfield is a fresh, funny, and utterly charming spin on Dickens' classic starring Dev Patel.

From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

“The film ultimately lives or dies on the strength of its central performance. And in Patel's hands it's a thing of beauty. You've got to love him.” Times (UK)

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