Dev Patel As David Copperfield

Patel radiates charm and vitality, which makes him a good choice for the role in this new movie directed by Armando “Veep” Iannuci. A fresh take on Dickens’ celebrated novel, The Personal History of David Copperfield boasts a stellar British cast, led by Dev Patel in the titular role and also including Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Ben Whishaw, and Gwendoline Christie. Adapted by Iannucci alongside frequent collaborator Simon Blackwell, the comedic tale centres around on one of Dickens’ most cherished characters, the good-hearted David Copperfield, who is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian 19th century England.
