David Copperfield is a very good film. I would definitely watch it again. And I highly recommend it to anyone who likes romantic comedies or comedies about a husband and wife or that just love of a wife or wife's and husband. I was really impressed with the acting in this film. The acting is so realistic, it is really amazing. However, there is a little thing about this film that I don't really like. In the beginning of the film, I thought it was going to be a "basic" love story, like in "The Wedding Crashers", but it turned out to be more than that. I really liked the way the film depicted a very ordinary, very ordinary love story. I like the way the film portrayed the very, very, very ordinary "separation" between the characters. It's not a big deal, you can get used to it and you can tell that it's just a part of the life. It's not very intense, but it's something we have to live with and we have to face. And I liked the way the film showed the relationship between a father and his daughter. I liked the way the father has to be the one who represents his family. He does not take care of his daughter, and he does not get involved in her life. He tries to make sure she is comfortable and happy in her new home and her new environment, and when she starts going to school, he can't even touch her. It's a very simple relationship, but it's the relationship of a father and his daughter. So I liked the way that it was portrayed. Overall, I really recommend this film. I really liked it.

I remember a young Henry, who was my age, made me laugh when he was given a week to live in a mental institution. He told us all about it and how he came across his "greatest friend", a young man, in one of the institutions. He was surrounded by high people, his own age, and were all nice people. It was the best day of his life. He talked about that day and of the "fortunes he had in his life" and how he should have been happy with the money he got. He told us how he was free from all his troubles and was a "free man". Now I wish that were true. His side of the story was told with all the seriousness and honesty of a story about life and death. There is no tragedy in this movie. There is no death in this movie. There is just a little glimpse of life as it is and the new situation we are in. The life of David Copperfield was one of happiness and peace. If he had been in a lot of trouble and had some money problems, he would not have been a "free man". I think that life is a gift and how we treat it is a gift, too. We should treat life as a gift, not a curse. He knew that we all have some problems in life and that he could not help us, but that he could help himself. He knew that the fact that he was a good man and that he had a good wife and a good son made him a "good man". We all have problems in life. We are all human. We are all flawed and our problems are human. Life is not a miracle. Life is human. That is what David Copperfield was and that is what this movie is about. To treat life as a gift and to live your life as a gift. All in all, a very good movie. I hope that I can get it on DVD soon.

This is a nicely done adaptation of the Samuel Taylor Coleridge classic. A sharp and easy to follow, if occasionally too flat, adaptation. Some viewers may be disappointed with the lack of extensive character development. It seems at times that the script went for more of a historical overview. There are also minor changes to the original story to the point of distraction. But what really works are the characters. The overall experience is very engaging and the characters develop in a natural way. It is refreshing to see these great Shakespearean characters brought to the screen in a movie. Christopher Hampton gives a fine performance as David Copperfield. It is very easy to get caught up in the character and can be quite confusing at times. Jeffrey Wright is also very good and adds a good bit of depth to the character of David Copperfield. Tony Cox also does well with the role of David Copperfield. Clive Owen does a good job of playing David Copperfield, and he adds a good bit of comedic relief to the script. His character is also more believable and engaging than the previous David Copperfield. Most of the other actors, especially the three leads, are excellent in their roles. The supporting characters, especially the uncle, are very entertaining. The script is very well written and very good in pace. The characters are well rounded and a pleasure to watch. Some of the characters may seem over-the-top, but this is meant to show that the characters are more than just stereotypes. It is easy to identify with the characters and enjoy their journey. The entire movie is a pleasure to watch. It is easy to forget that it is in the movie medium. It is a small production but the movie is great. It is hard to believe that the movie was made in about the same time period as Shakespeare. The cinematography is well done. The production design and costume design is also fine. The costumes of the characters are very nice. The music is also fine. The score for the movie is also very good. It does not feel like the movie is over-producing any more than it has. The scenes with the costumes, the dancing, the music, and the script all fit in very well. All in all, a very good adaptation of the Coleridge classic. It is difficult to believe that the movie was made in the same time period as Shakespeare. The costumes, the production design, and the score all fit in very well and the movie is very well-made. Overall, the movie is well-made. It is a good adaptation and worth watching.
