This coming Friday (18th February), there will be very few films coming out in UK cinemas. Why not try something different instead of the usual blockbusters, why not watch a documentary like The Real Charlie Chaplin?
Altitude Films will be releasing the inventive film from duo Peter Middleton and James Spinney who brought us award winning Notes On Blindness. The film promises to showcase the meteoric rise of Chaplin from the London slums to becoming a global superstar, before his fall from grace.
Our writer Lynsey Ford recently wrote a brilliant Article/Review for the film describing “The Real Charlie Chaplin remains a fascinating snapshot into the life of one of our most iconic figures of 20th century cinema“. We agree, a film that celebrates Chaplin‘s rags to riches to the power he also had. A side of the iconic silent master many people know very little about.
Altitude Films have sent us a fascinating clip ‘Chaplin’s Costume‘ which teases the costume for the legendary Tramp character come to be?
