Armando Iannucci‘s passion project The Personal History Of David Copperfield, is gathering a fantastic buzz. Ever since it’s premiere earlier in the Summer on the festival circuit, it’s a must watch for 2020.
Recently the film gained 11 nominations recently at the 2019 British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs). The film sees Dev Patel in the titular role with an adaptation of the popular Charles Dickens novel.
Lionsgate have released a set of new character posters of the film’s main characters. Check out the fringe on Ben Whishaw’s Poster and Hugh Laurie’s character name “Mr.Dick” Will unleash a few childish giggles…
From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.
The film also stars Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw, Paul Whitehouse, Aneurin Barnard, Daisy May Cooper, Morfydd Clark, Benedict Wong, Gwendoline Christie, Anthony Welsh and Rosalind Eleazar.
The Personal History Of David Copperfield will be released by Lionsgate in UK Cinemas from 24th January 2020.
