McKellen: Playing the Part

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A feature length 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 diaries written when he was 12 and unseen behind the scenes of theatre shows and films.
The documentary is built around a 14 hour interview covering everything from his upbringing to becoming a theatre star, to coming out and being a leader in the gay rights movement, to his film stardom from Magneto to Gandalf, and personal thoughts on everything from acting to old age and death.
