DAVID COPPERFIELD (2000 TV MOVIE)
"Like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favourite child. And his name is David Copperfield." Charles Dickens.
Charles Dickens' classic mid-19th century work David Copperfield comes to life in a lavish three hour adaptation from filmmaker Peter Medak (award winning director of The Krays). Tracing the extraordinary life of a young man coming into his own, David Copperfield (Hugh Dancy, TV's Hannibal) is a character of considerable perseverance. After the death of his father at a young age, David must deal with a blustering stepfather Edward Murdstone (Anthony Edwards, The Scarlet Pimpernel) who rules with a heavy hand. Exposed to the many trials and tribulations of a boarding school education, David returns to his family home only to encounter alienation rather than reunion. Turning to eccentric aunt Betsey Trotwood (Oscar® winner Sally Field, Forrest Gump) for support and guidance, David sets out to establish himself and build a life of worthwhile experiences in an unforgiving world of deception, where reputation and status is everything.
Featuring supporting performances from Paul Bettany (The Avengers), Michael Richards (Seinfeld), Eileen Atkins (Robin Hood), Judy Cornwell (Keeping Up Appearances), Nigel Davenport (Chariots of Fire), Edward Hardwicke (Elizabeth), Freddie Jones (The Elephant Man), Alec McCowen (Gangs of New York) and Frank McCusker (The Tudors),David Copperfieldperfectlycaptures the life-long saga - a tale of determination and personal fortitude - celebrating one of the greatest characters in literary history.
