ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. captures the essence of comic genius Charlie Chaplin in a compelling, nuanced performance that earned him Oscar(r) 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.

I wrote this review especially to say that I have been in love with Dianne Lane all my life, and I do not know of a moment in any film where her beauty has been so raw, and so powerful. In later years, Lane has become a greatly respected actress, but at this time she was still very, very young. She has never lost a single photon of her radiance, and I find her as stunning today, playing the elderly mother of Superman, as I did all these years ago. She is a walking and breathing Halleluiah to the spirit of eternal and incandescent loveliness.
If you have not seen this film, I truly envy you.
A final note:
Before you watch this, find "The Gold Rush", first, and then "The Great Dictator", and invest a bit of time In watching Hollywood's "greatest ballet artist" do his dance, in anticipation of watching the story of his life. Before the words "that stuff is OLD" can come out of your mouth, you will be laughing too hard to say them. And, perhaps crying,
You will thank me, I think, for knowing Charlie a little more personally, when you come to his own story.
How it is this movie is not more well known is a mystery to me. Do yourself a favor and immerse yourself in "Chaplin".
