A modern take on Charles Dickens's classic tale of a young orphan who is able to triumph over many obstacles.
Benedict Wong and Tilda Swinton also worked together in Doctor Strange (2016) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
My mind is as clear as a soap bubble!
Early in the film, the young David sees the gravestone of his father, stating that he died in 1841, some months before David's birth. Although no exact dates are given in the novel, David is supposed to be writing his memoirs in 1850, at a time when he is the father to at least four children born after the events of the last chapter. This implies that David was born (and his father died) somewhere around 1815, possibly earlier.
The end credits are supposed to be listed in alphabetical order, however, Paul Whitehouse is billed above Ben Whishaw whereas they should be the other way around.
