For some people, the prim attitude which reigned supreme in the 1950s and 60s was nothing less than rank hypocrisy - and had to be challenged, even if that meant getting into trouble with the authorities along the way. Stand-up comedian Lenny Bruce was one of those people - a foul-mouthed, anti-establishment figure who many still consider a comic genius, but who is possibly even more famous for the boundary-pushing, taboo-busting nature of his routines, and the chaotic, destructive private life he had off-stage. Star Dustin Hoffman delivers a stunning performance as the troubled Bruce in this powerful biopic.
