"American Splendor" is a 2003 biopic about Harvey Pekar, the author of the "American Splendor" comic book series. It is in part an adaptation of the comics, which dramatize Pekar's life. It was written and directed by documentarians Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini. It stars Paul Giamatti as Pekar and Hope Davis as his wife, Joyce Brabner. However, it also features appearances from Pekar and Brabner themselves (along with Toby Radloff), who discuss their lives, the comic books, and how it feels to be depicted onscreen by actors. It was filmed entirely on location in Cleveland and Lakewood in Ohio.Fact|date=July 2007
