THE TRAMP’S NEW WORLD is the cinematic equivalent to a one-man play, and focuses on the treatment James Agee created for Charlie Chaplin. As this intimate portrait unfolds, we see Agee in the process of writing and through the force of his imagination, bringing The Tramp’s New World to life. In terms of spirit, this film is similar to Abel Ferrara’s film Pasolini.
