David Copperfield (1999) – Dickens’ Colorful Characters: A Must-See Adaptation for Harry Potter Fans

It’s never a dull moment when you step inside the world of Charles Dickens. The nuances and intentional play within the story (the colorful characters framing what is otherwise a dark world, usually for the hero) are always on point. Thought to be one of Dickens’ most autobiographical stories, David Copperfield is also said to be his favorite. Or that’s what the closing commentary epilogue of this DVD (hosted by Russell Baker) reveals.
