The Life And Death of Peter Sellers Synopsis

A scabrous, searching look behind the mask of a comedy icon.

Who was the real Peter Sellers? Which of the million faces he wore on screen was his own?

Through his rapid rise to fame, through his four marriages and several affairs, through his extraordinary relationships with family and friends, this film explores the world of a comic genius.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS was an Official Selection in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival 2004.
