The irresistible pairing of Iannucci and Charles Dickens produces a hilarious, contemporary spin on a timeless story that follows young David on his journey from childhood to middle age. Along the way he learns about social injustice and meets some of the richest characters from the Dickens universe such as eternal optimist Mr Micawber (Peter Capaldi), eccentric Mr Dick (Laurie) and humble but deadly Uriah Heep (Whishaw). If you missed this at 2019’s BFI London Film Festival, now’s your chance to catch it ahead of general release.
