The Personal History of David Copperfield

A modern take on Charles Dickens’s classic tale of a young orphan who is able to triumph over many obstacles.

Aaron loved it and thought it was brilliant. He thought the film had some very funny moments, as well as a lot of emotion and heart. You connect with the characters. It’s fun and whimsical. It also reminds you of how tough it could be for some people in Victorian England. It’s a fresh take on what otherwise could be set in a dim, dark world.    

Family friendly filter:

  • Rated PG
  • Violence – the main character gets into a fist fight. You see some blood, but you don’t see much of the actual fight before it cuts to the next scene.
  • Sexual references. No sex scenes. A couple that run of together.
  • Not for younger audiences. For teenagers and above.

Aaron Brown gives this fil a thumbs up! If you’re wanting to get back to the cinemas and want to see a period film that brings joy, is very quirky, then this will be one to check out.
