Critic Reviews for The Personal History of David Copperfield
Also, Dickens's female characters are much improved, so all hail this showcase for the talent of Iannucci, a sly reminder that it's possible to be both a national treasure and a thorn in the establishment's side.
The script feels like it was tested in a wind tunnel - while the use of farce as the plot's default register makes a virtue of the rush to get through everything that remains.
Everything rattles and zings like a pinball machine, and it's a bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying experience.
Iannucci has fun with the classic serial-turned-novel and throws in a bit of defiant color-blind casting for kicks, but it takes some getting used to a gentler, less biting Iannucci.
The meta-fiction may be overdone, but that and the director's feeling for tone create the expansive atmosphere in which a talented multiracial cast lead by Dev Patel can master everything from pure melodrama to high comedy.
