THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD
Wednesday 11 March 2020 at 2.30pm (Subtitled) and 7.30pm

Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw

Armando Iannucci follows The Death of Stalin with a characteristically exuberant reworking of the Dickens classic. Using visual tropes that are more comic-book than Victorian novel, and a varied but vibrant cast headed by Dev Patel in the title role, this is at once funny and colourful, as well as poignant and hard-hitting on the subjects of poverty, class difference and child exploitation. Nothing less than you’d expect from the man who gave us Alan Partridge and The Thick of It, with characters like Mr Micawber and Uriah Heep given new life by Capaldi and Whishaw.

THE DEATH OF STALIN (15) – 2017 UK/France 106 min

Director: Armando Iannucci
Stars: Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Simon Russell Beale, Michael Palin

Image of film appears hereFor the leaders of the USSR, material comforts are hard to enjoy when every night could be your last, as Stalin signs off the murderous lists compiled by internal security minister Lavrentiy Beria (Beale). When Uncle Joe is struck down by a stroke, Beria sees the absurd deputy leader Malenkov (Tambor) as his ideal puppet, but Nikita Khrushchev (Buscemi) is on manoeuvres too. Iannucci (The Thick of It, Veep) has condensed the events of 1953 into a brilliant, farcical black comedy – a “delicious mockery” (The Telegraph), with a deadly serious edge.

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.
For this film we are showing Turnips (U) (4.53 mins), directed by Clint Frift. A Borough Market stall holder discusses how the market has changed over the years.
