Screening: The Personal History of David Copperfield (PG)
Dir Armando Iannucci 2019
119mins/English 
Dev Patel/Hugh Laurie/Tilda Swinton

Director Armando Iannucci (The Death of Stalin) brings his sardonic wit to Charles Dickens’ classic autobiographical novel. With its refreshing and incredibly progressive colour-blind casting and ceaseless visual surprises – walls literally fall away to make room for flashbacks – Iannucci and co-writer Simon Blackwell transpose their source material into a decidedly 21st-century cinematic context. Yet the film never loses sight of its central ideas: that great art is born of great experience, and one’s true fortune can be measured in friends.
