Enig­matic, charis­matic and hugely tal­ented, Peter Finch died just be­fore he re­ceived his Os­car for his crit­i­cally ac­claimed role in the film Net­work.

Mad As Hell re­traces the life of this British-born Aus­tralian ac­tor, a star who lived in Lane Cove, Sydney as a teenager and then went on to in­ter­na­tional star­dom, hav­ing re­la­tion­ships with some of the world’s most beau­ti­ful and suc­cess­ful ac­tresses, as well as work­ing with them.

Finch’s life is told by his three daugh­ters, friends and col­leagues. A fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into his per­sonal life and ca­reer and the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Aus­tralia and Bri­tain in the 1940s and ‘50s.
