Chaplin Movie Summary
Chaplin is based upon the book, My Autobiography, by Charles Chaplin. The film recounts the life of the legendary actor, producer, composer and director. The story begins with an elderly Charlie (Oscar nominated Robert Downey Jr.) recounting his life story to a writer (Anthony Hopkins).
