ADAPTATION
Period set delights for you today, beginning with photos arriving from the sets of Armando Iannucci's big screen version of THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD based on Charles Dickens’ semi autobiographical chronicle of the life of the iconic title character!  They show Dev Patel who takes the role of the titular hero. The story follows Copperfield in the 1840's 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, all the while on a journey full of life, colour and humanity. Dickens actually modelled the character after himself. You can also see Aneurin Barnard in the photos,

  1. Any movie based on Dickens' works is a celebration. (I see that Hugh Laurie from "House" is also in the cast.I didn't like him, but I liked the concept of the serial that focused on Diagnostics).

    There's another famous David Copperfield - the magician. There'll probably be a movie on him too (unless there's already one and I'm not familiar with).

    1. I haven't heard about Copperfield the magician in a very long time, is he still alive? :)
      Hope you did not miss BBC's series DICKENSIAN from about two or threee years ago, it was lovely.

  4. David Copperfield should be good. I've been seeing Tilde Swinton in a few movies. Interesting that she'll be in this one.

  5. We actually stopped by the Dickens' Museum in London so Jason could catch a peek, but didn't end up going in to explore because we were short on time and were parked in a tow away zone. Maybe if we ever go back, we'll scoop out some time to actually browse around inside for a bit.
