“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.”– Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
“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.” – Al Alexander, THE PATRIOT LEDGER
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.
