Quotes

David Copperfield: That is what he is, this fellow; a cold blooded, calculation fortune hunter, without honour, scruple, or mercy.
Mr. Edward Murdstone: [overturns the table they are sitting at] Be silent!
David Copperfield: I have been silent too long! I will be silent no more!
Miss Jane Murdstone: Edward... come away
Mr. Edward Murdstone: Hold your tounge!
David Copperfield: He bullied, and harried my poor, weak mother into her grave!
Mr. Edward Murdstone: Yes, she was weak. But it was not I who preyed upon her weakness, it was here own SON, who drained her of the strenght he needed with his wild behaviour and importunate demands!

David Copperfield (2000)
24 September 2005 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

I have been all over the place to find a DVD for this film, there is just a limited edition around. I don't agree with the negative comments, the plot of actors is magnificent and this is what makes a good film, the right selection for every character and having it compared to previous editions which were dull and boring. in particular the BBC one with Bob Hoskins which I returned to the shop. What makes the film particularly interesting is the recurring evil stepfather (Amthony Andrews) and Copperfield's (Hugh Dancy) personal revenge, a change I think that works very well. I would have never thought that I could become attached to David Copperfield until I saw this film.
