Film show: Reinventing classic Dickens for the modern age
Issued on: Modified:
Film critic Lisa Nesselson speaks to Eve Jackson about the week's movie news, including Armando Iannucci's adaptation of Charles Dickens's "The Personal History of David Copperfield" for the silver screen, starring Dev Patel. It was intended for movie theatres but starts streaming in France this week on Amazon Prime. We also give our top French film tips, including "Burning Ghost", a strikingly original take on life versus the afterlife, set mostly in Paris's 19th arrondissement, plus Jean Cocteau's "Orpheus", both of which you can watch outside France on MyFrenchFilmFestival.com.
