  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A feature film documentary on the life and work of Sir Ian McKellen. Fully authorised, including access to private photo albums and a wealth of never-before-seen archive material, including diary’s written when he was 12 and unseen behind the scenes of theatre shows and films. The documentary is built around a 12 hour interview covering everything from his upbringing to becoming a theatre star, to coming out and being a leader in the gay right movement, to his film stardom from Magneto to Gandalf, and personal thoughts on everything from acting to old age and death.
