Chaplin (1992) (C)
Release Date: October 14, 2008.
From the Oscar winning director of Gandhi.
Robert Downey, Jr. captures the essence of comic genius Charlie Chaplin in a compelling, nuanced performance that earned him Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor. Director Richard Attenborough's well-crafted portrait traces Chaplin's impoverished London upbringing, extraordinary success as an actor and director, his troubled marriages, scandalous affairs, shocking exile to Switzerland and his triumphant return to Hollywood.
The huge star-studded cast includes Kevin Kline, Dan Aykroyd, Milla Jovovich, Diane Lane and Geraldine Chaplin (as her own grandmother), and Downey's astonishing mimicry of Chaplin's gait, gestures and accents complete a dizzyingly authentic portrait of one of cinema's first pop culture icons. -- (C) Alliance Films, 1992, USA/Japan/France/Italy.
