Amazon Prime users will be delighted to know that one of the hit movies of 2020 is now available to subscribers on the app.

The Armando Iannucci-helmed The Personal History of David Copperfield was one of the last to come out in cinemas prior to lockdown, and was a pure joy from start to finish.

Starring Dev Patel as the titular character, the diverse and talented cast portray the soul of Charles Dickens’s Victorian novel, charting the harshness of David’s upbringing.

Long-term Iannucci collaborator Peter Capaldi provides a star turn as Mr Micawber, the oft very poor but positive clerk constantly in the hope that something will turn up.

Both Hugh Lawrie and Daisy May Cooper have worked with the former Day Today man – in Avenue Five – and both play their part in the beauty of the film.

Tilda Swinton puts a lot of effort to ensure her eccentric Aunt Betsy is perfect while Ben Whishaw is excellently-creepy enough as Uriah Heep.

The supporting cast, including Paul Whitehouse, Benedict Wong, Rosalind Eleazar, among many others, is excellent but Patel holds his own as the main man, showing the nuances of David’s mental health, happiness and his many defeats.

If you have access to it, make it a priority.
