Everyone Has A Wild Side. Even A Legend.
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 dazzlingly authentic portrait of one of cinema's first pop culture icons.

"...Robert Downey, Jr. is brilliant...  Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"...Downey captures Chaplin's spirit, even in costume as the Tramp...  Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Plot Summary
A dramatized biography of the highs and lows in the life of one of the foremost comic geniuses the screen has ever known. Presented as the reminiscences of an elderly Chaplin, the narrative opens with the comic's impoverished East London childhood, and progresses through his vaudeville and Hollywood successes to his virtual banishment from the United States, and eventually his welcome back to accept a special Academy Award -- 20 years too late.
