Worthy Film of the Dickens Novel - David Copperfield review by CD

Spoiler Alert

I was not sure about the casting of the actors playing the young and older David Copperfield, but in the second part Hugh Dancy does very well in the title role. The support actors are very strong, in particular the actor playing David C's Aunt Betsey Trotwood, who introduces a kind of Mary Poppins energy to the role which works well. The adaptation is well paced over the two parts and the Irish film locations work well. The actor playing Uriah Heep is suitable "humble" and obsequious, and Micawber is given an interesting comic uplift . Overall a good watch.
