Being There is a 1979 film which tells the story of a gardener who has been sheltered from the world by his employer.

It stars Peter Sellers, Shirley MacLaine, Melvyn Douglas, Jack Warden[?], Richard A. Dysart[?] and Richard Basehart.

It was adapted by Robert C. Jones[?] (uncredited) and Jerzy Kosinski from the novel by Kosinski. It was directed by Hal Ashby[?].

It won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (Melvyn Douglas) and was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role.
