CHAPLIN

Charlie Chaplin is a legend: The man made more people laugh than any other comedian and was one of the founders of the film industry. Bringing his life onto the big screen is the ultimate challenge. From his humble origins in London to his success in Hollywood with the early silent films, him becoming a superstar, his fondness of underage girls and finally his fight with the FBI that lead to his exile in Europe CHAPLIN depicts the life of the exceptional talent.

The multi-award-winning director Richard Attenborough selected a star cast that includes Chaplin’s own daughter Geraldine, Dan Aykroyd, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Kline and Marisa Tomei. He presents Chaplin as a man, showcasing him, his films, women, wives and friends, and the milieu in which he lived and worked. Actor Robert Downey Jr. doesn't just play Chaplin, he IS Chaplin.The cript is written by bestseller author William Boyd, award-winning screenwriter Bryan Forbes and writer William Goldman.

 CHAPLIN is one of the best biopics ever. It features an outstanding performance by the cast and, like Chaplin’s immortal Little Tramp, is a work of understated brilliance that deserves to be ranked among the classics.
