Being There

This 1979 comedy, based on a Jerzy Kosinski novel and directed by Hal Ashby (Harold and Maude, Coming Home), features one of Peter Sellers' best performances. Sellers is Chance, a simple-minded, socially sheltered gardener who inherits a fortune and becomes a trusted advisor to a powerful businessman. Politics, celebrity, media obsession and television are just a few of the topics this ahead-of-its-time film satirizes. Double-featured with another outsider comedy, The Brother From Another Planet. 130 minutes PG.
