After the 74-year-old "Seinfeld" creator went viral in several videos for covering his ears at boisterous events such as New York Fashion Week and the US Open, David's daughter finally opened up on her dad's odd behavior.

Charles Dickens' longest novel has a title to match: The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery. That's too much to fit on a film poster, though, which is probably why writer-director Armando Iannucci abbreviated it to The Personal History of David Copperfield in his new adaptation of the story, which is about the life, loves, and changing fortunes of a young Victorian boy who grows up to become a writer. The title isn't the only thing getting the chop: The director reunited with his The Thick of It and Veep collaborator Simon Blackwell to condense hundreds of pages into a tidy two-hour runtime.

It is the metabolic opposite of "Euphoria." The remarkably humane melodrama is not trying to influence you, or make you buy something; nor is it trying to ride on pop-cultural rhythms.
