The connection between his mother’s death in Auschwitz and wife Sharon Tate’s murder by the Manson family—both women were pregnant His radical transition from childhood poverty in a Krakow ghetto to a glamorous Hollywood life among socialites The psychological complexity and central thread of sexuality that runs throughout his films and his relationships with younger women A culmination of tragedies in Polanski’s life, from the Holocaust to the Manson murders to his sexual assault charges and subsequent exile from the U.S. The unique humor of the “rascal genius” that keeps the world watching and awaiting his new projects
Acclaimed biographer Sandford draws on dozens of interviews with actors who have worked with Polanski, as well as previously sealed transcripts of his criminal hearings, testimony before the California grand jury following the accusations that led to his exile, and personal reflections on the murders of Sharon Tate and other friends of the couple. Polanski’s films from 1962 to 2005 are contextualized within his life, including such highlights as Rosemary’s Baby, Chinatown, and the Oscar-winning The Pianist. Roman Polanski turns 75 in 2008, and his work, with two upcoming feature films including the political thriller Ghost, continues to receive more and more attention. Sandford's fascinatingbiography illuminates the life and work of one of the most important careers in modern cinema.
