The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers Film Poster


Feature adaptation of Roger Lewis' book about the actor best remembered for playing Inspector Clousseau in the Pink Panther movies, offering a glimpse into the many faces of Peter Sellers (Geoffrey Rush) to reveal how the comic genius teetered on the edge of insanity. The film traces the British actor's turbulent rise from the popular BBC radio presenter on 'The Goon Show' to one of the world's best-loved comic actors. As his career progresses, Sellers' private torment about his failure to reconcile his relations with women, celebrity and his many selves is divulged, as is his desperately low self-esteem despite critical acclaim and professional success. A searching look behind the mask of a comedy icon, through his rapid rise to fame, through his four marriages and several affairs.
