His early movie fame was based primarily on his comic characterizations, often of bumbling and foreign-accented persons, characters which he embodied. As his movie fame rose, he began to lose his own personal identity to his movie characters, leading to self-doubt of himself as a person and a constant need for reassurance and acceptance of his work. This self-doubt manifested itself in fits of anger and what was deemed as arrogance by many. In turn, his personal relationships began to deteriorate as his characterizations were continually used to mask his problems. His first wife, Anne Howe, left/divorced him and his relationships with his parents and children became increasingly distant. His relationship with his second wife, Swedish actress Britt Ekland, was based on this mask. In his later life, he tried to rediscover himself and his career with what would become his penultimate film role, that of Chance in Being There (1979).
Plot: The turbulent personal and professional life of actor Peter Sellers (1925-1980), from his beginnings as a comic performer on BBC Radio to his huge success as one of the greatest film comedians of all time; an obsessive artist so dedicated to his work that neglected his loved ones and sacrificed part of his own personality to convincingly create that of his many memorable characters.

Memorable Bio Thanks To Rush, Margoyles
I didn’t expect this biography to be so interesting but, then, I didn’t know a lot about Peter Sellers’ private life except for his marriage to Swedish beauty Britt Ekland. One thing that made this more interesting to me was that I grew up in Sellers’ era in the ’50s through ’70s and was familiar with all his films.

Sellers obviously led a strange life or they wouldn’t have made a movie about it. I expected what I got: a look at a great film comedian but also a disturbed person underneath the comic image, one that wasn’t so funny. Modern films (those since the late ’60s) seem to almost sadistically delight in showing a famous person’s bad points, more than his or her good. Thus, for many people, this probably wasn’t a pleasant film to watch. However, I didn’t mind because I found Geoffrey Rush’s acting so good, his portrayal of Sellers so credible and fascinating, that I could put up with some of the not-so-much fun to watch scenes. I don’t think the latter was overemphasized, anyway.

Watching this film, I thought what a tragic figure was Sellers’ mother “Peg,” played memorably by Miriam Margolyes. This actress gets almost no billing because she’s isn’t well- known and that’s a pity because she is very good in here. In fact, she’s the second “star” of this film. After that comes Charlize Theron as the aforementioned Ekland, Emily Watson as Sellers’ first wife “Anne;” John Lithgow as “Blake Edwards,” Stanley Tucci as “Stanley Kubrick,” and other fine actors.

All the actors were excellent but this is still Rush’s film. He dominates almost every scene, reminding me of his first big hit, “Shine.”

Overall, this is an interesting biography. Kudos to director Stephen Hopkins for a job well done, too.

Rambling and unfocused
Mr Rush was phenomenal in this film. He managed to not only convincingly play Peter Sellers, but also some of Sellers’ most memorable roles. I cannot stress enough how amazing Geoffrey Rush was in this film, and it is a veritable crime against humanity that HBO would disqualify him for the Oscar he would most likely win.

However, even Rush’s stellar performance could not save this movie. The film focuses entirely on Sellers’ faults and makes great strides to villainize him. The filmmaker seems to want you to view Sellers as a watered-down Hitler or a tame Charles Manson. Yet the object of the film seems to be a vain attempt to invoke the audiences sympathy for the man. How can you spend two hours showing me that a man is pure evil and then expect me to sympathize with him?

The film is rambling and unfocused, coming across as more of a series of unconnected anecdotes than a true biographical story. Where is Sellers’ comedic genius? Where is the kind and sensitive man that we’ve read about in numerous interviews? What’s the point?
