THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD

“Against the odds, Iannucci has delivered a minor miracle.”
5/5 – Irish Times

“It’s an absolute joy to watch, and I would recommend it anyone who could do with putting a smile on their face.”
4.5/5 – RTÉ

“It’s no exaggeration to describe The Personal History of David Copperfield as one of the greatest Dickensian adaptations of them all.”
5/5 – Irish Independent

“Everything rattles and zings like a pinball machine, and it’s a bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying experience.”
4/5 – Guardian

“A fast-moving yarn, sometimes hilarious and always entertaining.”
Hollywood Reporter

“Iannucci has made his most human film, an attempt to find something helpful, funny and above all positive to help us to navigate the sorry state of Britain of today.”
4/5 – Times

“Armando Iannucci’s rollicking adaptation announces itself as a radical and progressive reclamation of the heritage ‘lit pic’ from the off.”
Sight and Sound
