  • all hail this showcase for the talent of Iannucci, a sly reminder that it's possible to be both a national treasure and a thorn in the establishment's side.
    London Evening Standard

  • Everything rattles and zings like a pinball machine, and it's a bracing, entertaining, richly satisfying experience.

  • Armando Iannucci's rollicking adaptation announces itself as a radical and progressive reclamation of the heritage 'lit pic' from the off.
    Sight and Sound

  • Like some kind of long-lost Monty Python sketch, Iannucci's revisionist "David Copperfield" alternates between intellect and absurdity, blending high- and lowbrow elements.

  • ruthless in trimming the sprawling story to a manageable size, and is absolutely faithful to the tone and spirit of Dickens
    Daily Mirror

  • A fleet-footed and boisterously enjoyable Dickens adaptation that breathes new life into a well-worn story. A winning Dev Patel leads a highly amusing cast.
