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.

It's Radner's voice-especially when describing her struggles with food, fame, and men-that shines brightest.

November 1, 2018

It's such an altogether perceptive work of both biography and criticism, and so thoroughly researched, that it's a shame that its more inventive gambits don't pan out.

There's just too much Gilda greatness - on and off camera - to be contained in an 86-minute box.

September 25, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

To D'Apolito's credit, she doesn't shout about the parallels between then and now, instead once again allowing Radner herself to do all the heavy lifting for her.

Even with what feels like an all-access pass, Love, Gilda feels as if it's barely caressed the surface, much less scratched it.

September 22, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

We come away with the portrait of someone who was never just going along for the ride, but who was always questioning and challenging herself, working toward professional excellence and hoping for an ideal romance.
