"A wonderfully entertaining adaptation, full to bursting with fantastic comic performances"

★★★★★ The Guardian

From idyllic countryside manors to grizzly workhouses, overturned boats and donkey infested estates, Copperfield has seen and lived it all.

This comical reimagining of Dickens’ novel sees open-hearted and linguistically gifted Copperfield (Dev Patel) navigate Victorian England in this crowd-pleasing feature from Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, The Death of Stalin).
