From idyllic countryside manors, to grizzly workhouses, overturned boats and donkey infested estates, David Copperfield has seen and lived it all. This comical reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic ode to grit and perseverance sees open-hearted and linguistically gifted Copperfield navigate Victorian England on his quirky journey from impoverished orphan to burgeoning writer. From Emmy winners and Oscar nominees Armando Iannucci (In the Loop, The Death of Stalin) and Simon Blackwell this crowd-pleasing comedy gives the Dickensian tale new life for a cosmopolitan age with a diverse ensemble cast of stage and screen actors from across the world.
Directed by: Armando Iannucci
