Being There

Must-See Cinema! You’ll be saying, “I like to watch.”

Alternate poster for the seriocomedy Being ThereHal Ashby’s satirical parable on U.S. susceptibility to homespun evangelicalism gives Peter Sellers the role of a lifetime. A simple-minded gardener named Chance who has spent his life in seclusion, ventures into the outside world for the first time after his employer dies. There, his homespun outlook on life is mistaken for philosophical wisdom and puts him on the road to becoming a highly influential political adviser. Veteran Melvyn Douglas refuses to be upstaged by Sellers and thoroughly deserved his Oscar for best supporting actor.
