Love Gilda (2018)

1h 28m / Not Rated / Documentary

Gilda Radner puts a smile on the faces of people who remember watching her as one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, where she created and portrayed such now-classic comic characters as Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner. She quickly rose to meteoric fame in television, movies and on Broadway, and was declared one of America’s sweethearts.

Directed by Lisa D’Apolito, Love Gilda is a true autobiography, told in Gilda’s words and in her own voice. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with personal friends like Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels and Martin Short, and rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph), it opens up a window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
