    ★★★★½

    Capturing the brilliance that is Charles Chaplin.

    Charlie Chaplin is not an easy person to just do a biography on. An iconic figure whose work is the stuff of legend. It’s hard to translate such a person to a believable story featuring likewise performances.

I want to say this isn't a perfect film, but I can't find any fault with it. From stars Ben Affleck - I never hated him, but after this i don't see why anyone still would…
