From legendary director Richard Attenborough (Shadowlands, Gandhi, Cry Freedom) comes the epic story of a true cinematic icon, Charlie Chaplin. In this award-winning masterpiece we follow Chaplin’s increasingly complicated life from a poverty stricken music hall entertainer in England to eventual triumph in America. The story of Chaplin is the story of cinema as we watch him grow from developing silent era slapstick to becoming one of the most important, pioneering fathers of film making, the art-form of a new century. But although he was able to reflect wondrous, magical humour in his work his private life was afflicted with infamy, sadness and a growing sense of loss. Chaplin’s complex and dramatic career is lovingly brought to life by a stunning array of Hollywood talent. The cast includes unforgettable performances from Robert Downey Jr, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Kline, Dan Akroyd, Penelope Ann Miller, the stunning Marisa Tomei and Geraldine Chaplin as her own grandmother. Chaplin also includes a soul stirring film score from celebrated composer John Barry.
