Biographer of Peter Sellers approves of film adaptation

For the Guardian, Peter Sellers’s biographer Roger Lewis writes about The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, the film version of his book, starring Geoffrey Rush. Lewis seems perplexed at the negative feedback he got from fans of Sellers. Funniest line: “My exposure of Sellers’s sexual promiscuity, violence, hysteria and bad manners was somehow a betrayal.”

Maybe it’s just me. Still tired.
