Movie Info

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.

Most crucially, D'Apolito allows her subject to guide the story from start to finish. Radner's gentle spirit and wise observations connect each chapter, bringing us into her life with an unusual intimacy.

Love, Gilda is a touching reminder of an iridescent star who shined brightly but for far too short a time. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll leave the theater wanting to dive down the YouTube rabbit hole of Gilda Radner.

God bless Gilda Radner for having the foresight to know that people wanted to know her.

Forty years later, her comedy looks more sublime than ever. As you watch "Love, Gilda," though, it becomes clear that what made Gilda Radner special - and uproarious - was her spirit: open, smiling, generous, euphoric.

A fond and funny, if brief, biography.

To D'Apolito's credit, her film doesn't dwell on the sadness. Rather, it's a celebration of a performer who revolutionized comedy and inspired future generations.
