Preview: The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)

+ ScreenTalk with Armando Iannucci

Dev Patel as David Copperfield

A fresh and fantastic new adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel of one man's journey

Armando Iannucci directs an impressive British cast in his latest film, a labour of love and homage to Dickens' writing. This whimsical and fast-paced adaptation stars talented new-comer Jairaj Varsani as the young David Copperfield who finds himself facing hardship after his widowed mother marries the evil Edward Murdstone. 

The adult Copperfield (Dev Patel) struggles to find his feet amongst the confusion of love, money, family and class. Co-starring Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw, this is another delightfully funny and tender turn from Iannucci.

Following this preview screening we are delighted to welcome Armando Iannucci for a ScreenTalk.
