The classic David Copperfield was not just Charles Dickens' favorite work, but has been the most
popular of his books since it was first published 150 years ago. Micawber, Peggotty, Betsey Trotwood,
Uriah Heep, Mr. Creakle, Mrs. Crupp, and Mr. Dick... never were so many of Dickens' famous and beloved
characters gathered together in one of his works.
They are all brought to life by a world-class cast including Daniel Radcliffe ("Harry Potter and the
Sorcerer's Stone"), Oscar-winner Maggie Smith ("The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie"), Bob Hoskins (Hook),
Nicholas Lyndhurst ("Bullshot") and Pauline Quirke ("The Elephant Man") in this sparkling adaptation.
The most autobiographical of Dickens' work, David Copperfield often echoed the writer's own life.
It tells a moving story of David's journey from birth to maturity, a journey which inextricably links
his life with some of Dickens' most colorful and extraordinary families.
