Synopsis

"The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" traces the British comic's turbulent rise from popular BBC radio performer to one of the world's most gifted comedic actors. Propelled by an overly possessive mother, Sellers struggled to find his place among women, among audiences and among his many selves. Confidence eluded him despite his marriages, critical acclaim, and professional successes.

The film unveils the private torments that prompted this talented, charismatic actor to exclaim "I hate everything I do", yet still reminds us why the world embraced this comic genius, elevating him to cultural icon.
