The producers of the movie The Personal History of David Copperfield have rewritten history, making the iconic Charles Dickens character, David Copperfield, Indian (played by Dev Patel).
The first big screen version of David Copperfield was released in 1935, starring Freddie Bartholomew in the title role, and went on to earn a Best Picture Oscar nomination.
David Copperfield tells the story of a gentle orphan who discovers life and love in an indifferent adult world.
Originally scheduled for theatrical release May 8, 2020, the film was put on the shelf due to Wuhan coronavirus and all movie theaters in the world being closed. The film ultimately bypassed movie theaters and debuted on Video On Demand .
