DVD arrived in perfect condition... I could tell it was from about 10 yrs ago as it was quite a fight to get all the taped edges and (double??) shrink wrap off.
I did enjoy movie and both of the commentaries, one by actor Geoffrey Rush & director Stephen Hopkins and the other by two of the writers. I remember seeing this on HBO in 2005/06 and since Peter Sellers was always a major favorite of mine, it was nice to see it again.... Even if some of the incidents were quite sad. For a guy who has been described as having "no personality of his own", he sure made good with the majority of his created ones. After watching this, I pulled up 'Dr Strangelove' and rewatched it. Still a disturbingly funny movie satire, but worth the time.
Geoffrey Rush did an amazing job!! He (like Peter) played multiple characters, and did it very well. There were moments I swear it looked like PS was there onscreen. Major Kudos to both GR and the makeup dept. Charlize Theron was gorgeous (duh!) as Britt Ekland and Emily Watson did such a good job playing Anne Sellers. I could feel the agony she went through trying to understand this man she married and also her attempt to keep her marriage & family together.
I'm really glad I stumbled over this DVD.
