    Revealing Mr Maugham - An Artumentary Film by Michael House.

    Who was W. Somerset Maugham? His hugely successful books and plays were adapted into major Hollywood movies, including Of Human Bondage and The Razors Edge: he was the highest paid author of the 1930s. Despite this level of notoriety, the average reader knows little baout this fascinating man. Filmmaker Michael House's illuminating documentary explores the professional and private complexities if this literary giant, who grew up in Whitstable and became the most successful writer of his age.

    Through interviews with family, friends and scholars, Revealing Mr Maugham paints a comprehensive picture of a dynamic life that began with his early struggles and led to his subsequent great success. We learn how a stammering, shy boy from a broken home manages to find his voice and his identity through the world of words. Insightful analysis from writers like Armistead Maupin and Alexander McCall-Smith also frame Maugham's sexually frank work around issues of gender politics and gay identity. House blends interviews, video footage and film clips to craft an exhilarating and informative portrait of a great writer and a mesmerizing man.

    Featuring interviews with Armistead Maupin, Alexander McCall-Smith, Selina Hastings, Ronald Harwood, and Maugham's family, it's essential viewing for anyone interested in discovering Maugham's life and work.
