This classic tale by Charles Dickens has been reimagined into a vibrant and hilarious fairytale-like adventure. David Copperfield remembers everyone he meets as outlandish and eccentric caricatures, each with their own colourful phrases and eccentricities, who he weaves into the incredible story of his personal history. The story describes his odyssey-like journey, moving from magical seaside boat-houses to dingy bottle factories, to a house under siege by donkeys and a rather ramshackle academy for young gentlemen. An absolutely stella cast makes this film laugh-out-loud funny at every turn and sometimes heart wrenchingly moving. No family film is as colourful, fast-paced and imaginative as this fantastic tale.
