The documentary about the life of legendary comedian and SNL star Gilda Radner will make a run in theaters later this year thanks to Magnolia Pictures.
Director Lisa D’Apolito used rare personal recordings and journal entries to tell Radner’s story in her own voice. Interviewees includes Michael Radner and SNL alumni Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Alan Zweibel, Laraine Newman and Martin Short. Radner’s writings are read by the likes of Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Cecily Strong and Bill Hader.
As a great doc about Garry Shandling came out earlier this year, uplifting docs about celebrated late comedians might just be a trend for the rest of 2018.
