Working inside a Walk/Don't Walk traffic light isn't as easy as it looks. When you learn more about Lester and James' life, you will never cross a street in the same way - especially if Julia isn't far away.
I disagree with the earlier comments on this adaptation. As a matter of fact, I very much enjoyed this version of Dickens' famous novel! Charismatic and handsome Hugh Dancy turns in a warm and sensitive portrayal of David Copperfield. Sally Field and Michael Richards are memorable and over-the-top performances as quirky Betsy Trotwood and funny, good-hearted Mr. Micawber.
This adaptation came in the heels of the Ciaran McMenamin and Bob Hoskins version but deserves our attention as well. It is at times funny and light but also gives us an insight into the dark side of human nature, most especially through Anthony Andrews' cold, brutal Mr. Murdstone and Frank MacCusker's creepy Uriah Heep. Hats off to Hugh Dancy for giving us a David that we can emphatize with and admire. I highly recommend it!
