Synopsis

Our family film this year is a classic tale, brilliantly interpreted by one of the country’s leading satirists and backed up by a stellar ensemble cast. David Copperfield is a sheer unalloyed joy.

Dev Patel is excellent in the lead role in this fast-paced account of Copperfield’s young life, with memorable encounters with, amongst others, Tilda Swinton, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw and Hugh Laurie.

Everything rattles and zings like a pinball machine, and it’s a bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying experience. Peter Bradshaw
