synopsis

LOVE, GILDA opens a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of beloved performer Gilda Radner, whose greatest role was sharing her story. Working with the Radner estate, D’Apolito unearthed a collection of diaries and personal audio and videotapes documenting her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggles with cancer. These never-before-seen-or-heard footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story – through laughter and sometimes tears.

fan quotes:

"A heartfelt, honest look into a human who inspired countless women in comedy, and more than a few men as well, to shine their truth on life's foibles. Cheers to you Ms. Radner, you comedic whirlwind of truth. Please do yourself a favor everyone and see this documentary!" -chrls-wtrs on imdb.com
