Synopsis

Set in Victorian England but told with a modern sensibility, this version of Charles Dickens’ much-loved novel stars Dev Patel in the title role as David Copperfield, chronicling his journey from childhood into adulthood. After he is sent to work in a bottle factory by his mother’s new husband, the miserly and abusive Mr Murdstone, David discovers his love for language and resolves to become a writer. Escaping into the wider world, he meets a host of peculiar and wonderful characters including his outlandish aunt, Betsey Trotwood, and the cunning and singular Uriah Heep. Made with a diverse British cast, this broad and charming comedy from director Armando Ianucci is one of the most accessible and entertaining Dickens adaptations to date.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
