Plot & Details

For audiences who simply couldn't get enough of Simon Callow's uproarious one-man play on Broadway or the West End, this filmed version of the popular performance brings the acclaimed, side-splitting tour-de-force home to the delight of literary comedy lovers everywhere. With a hilarious mix of biographical fact and carefully choreographed fiction, Callow's unique interpretation of Charles Dickens' fascinating and often turbulent life offers a whole new perspective on the Victorian author responsible for such classics as Nicholas Nickleby and Oliver Twist.
