IT IS RARE FOR ME TO SEE A MOVIE WHEN IT’S STILL IN THEATERS BUT THANKS TO 20TH CENTURY STUDIOS I WAS ABLE TO CATCH UP ON A FEW THAT I MISSED!
Recently the fine folks at 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios- their home page is here) had sent me codes to several of the movies I missed so that I could share my thoughts on them with you. Part 1 was all about Underwater and Part 2 focused on The New Mutants. We’ve returned with Part 3 we will talk about The Personal History of David Copperfield.
The Personal History of David Copperfield
Charles Dickens wrote The Personal History of David Copperfield as an almost autobiography of his own life, pulling some of there world’s most well known literary characters from his own life and telling them as the life of David Copperfield himself. David struggles to find his way through life until he learns about his gift of writing. Visually the director used some original methods to tell the story with past characters interacting with the present as David relates various memories. The cast did a fantastic job but the story fell quite short of finding a way to capture my attention and hold it. This film was easily one you could have playing in the background and feel like you didn’t miss much as you look back to the film on occasion.
