“A touching reminder of an iridescent star who shined brightly, but for far too short a time.”—Brandon Katz, New York Observer
In her own words, comedian Gilda Radner looks back and reflects on her life and career. Weaving together recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with her friends, rare home movies, and diaries read by modern day comedians inspired by Radner (Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, and Cecily Strong), Love, Gilda offers a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
Radner’s public persona was fearless, passionate, and iconic. The film uncovers sides of Radner the public wasn’t privileged to know, beyond her beloved characters on Saturday Night Live: the Radner who struggled with success, fame, relationships, and a battle with ovarian cancer. The film is a loving tribute to one of the most iconic women working in comedy. 2018, U.S., DCP, 84 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
