Absolutely Love this film! A stunning, and unforgettable look into the life of one of films great treasures! One of the best acting performances I have ever seen period, and Downey Jr.'s best work for sure. I love the way the story is told using dictated flashbacks, and incorporating actual Chaplin films instead of trying to recreate. This works so well because Downey Jr. has an uncanny resemblance to the real man when in the Little Tramp character. Great supporting cast, including Charlie Chaplin’s actual daughter Geraldine who plays his mother in the film. All this wraps up with a truly wonderful ending that would bring a tear to anyone’s eye!
