Cineworld is delighted to be hosting special preview screenings of The Personal History of David Copperfield for BBC Children in Need on the 21st of January.
We've partnered with distributor Lionsgate to give audiences a special sneak peek at the eagerly anticipated, all star Charles Dickens adaptation, which goes on nationwide release on the 24th of January.
Master satirist Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It; The Death of Stalin) finds an altogether more heartwarming register in this spirited adaption of the Dickens classic. The author regarded David Copperfield as his "favourite child", and the film adaptation is stocked with fine actors ready to do the tale justice.
Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel is David, who guides us through his remarkable life story from childhood to adulthood. He's joined by the likes of Tilda Swinton as Betsey Trotwood, Peter Capaldi as Mr. Micawber, Ben Whishaw as Uriah Heep and Hugh Laurie as Mr Dick.
The movie has already generated critical acclaim on last year's film festival circuit and isn't to be missed. All proceeds from the screenings will go towards BBC Children in Need
