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.
