A fresh and distinctive take on Charles Dickens' semi-autobiographical masterpiece, The Personal History of David Copperfield, set in the 1840s, chronicles the life of its iconic title character as he navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it. From his unhappy childhood to the discovery of his gift as a storyteller and writer, David's journey is by turns hilarious and tragic, but always full of life, color and humanity.Written by

In Dickens' original novel, it is implied that Wilkins Micawber is slightly rotund, balding man. Quite the exact physical opposite of Peter Capaldi who plays him here, and much nearer to previous incarnations played by Bob Hoskins, Arthur Lowe and W.C. Fields. However as exact physical casting is not really adhered to in this film, it can be forgiven that the director also played loosely with his interpretation of this character (and asides from this, Capaldi's version of the character still portrays the blind optimism and shabby charm of Dickens character) .

Weird, ridiculous. I didn't recognise the Dickens' story apart from the inclusion of some of the characters. Three stars for the actors and their characterisations; none for the script or story. It's supposed to be a comedy but there was no laughter in the cinema in fact some people walked out half way through. I was tempted but thought it must get better; it didn't!
