In life and love, reality betrays us all.
|Peter Sellers gives a rare and remarkable dramatic performance as Benjamin Hoffman, a lonely middle-aged businessman who blackmails a beautiful young secretary (Sinead Cusack) into spending a week with him. But what begins as a seemingly sinister ordeal will slowly reveal itself to be an uncommon bond of tender yearnings, dark secrets and some very surprising realizations about the possibilities of love.|
Editor's NotePeter Sellers stars in this quirky drama as Benjamin Hoffman, a nebbish office worker who has been in love with his company's secretary, Janet Smith, for years. When Hoffman happens onto some unsavory information about her fiance, he hatches a disturbing blackmail scheme. Presenting Janet with the information, Hoffman tells her that in return for spending a week with him, he will destroy the information. She agrees and proceeds to spend the week with the quietly psychotic Hoffman, who behaves like a perfect gentleman, never betraying his obsessive love. Disturbing and oddly moving, HOFFMAN is a powerful love story that features an unforgettable dramatic performance by Mr. Sellers.
