The Personal History of David Copperfield

Directed, co-produced and co-written by Scottish Armando Iannucci, along with long-term British writing collaborator Ian Blackwell, this comedy-drama is a delightfully absurdist elevation of the original text. The BAFTA- and Golden Globe-nominated film stars remarkable comic performances from British actors Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw, Sarah Crowe and Benedict Wong. Co-produced by the UK’s Film4.





We follow the life of young orphan David Copperfield (Dev Patel) as he navigates life into adulthood. Along the way, he makes both friends and enemies alike, as he narrates us through his journey of self-discovery.
