Movie Preview: A “Death of Stalin” take on “The Personal History of David Copperfield”

Dev Patel has the title role, and Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw are among the many many Great Brits peopling this Armando Iannucci (“In the Loop,””Death of Stalin”) dance through Dickens.

“The Personal History of David Copperfield” opens in the UK in January, and with Lionsgate having it, should reach North America in the spring.

Unless they think they have a rare Oscar contender on their hands.
