Film: "McKellen: Playing the Part"
Constructed around a 14-hour interview, McKellen uncovers the remarkable story of actor Sir Ian McKellen. The legend himself takes us through key landmarks of his life: growing up during WWII; working in repertory and West End theatre to become a pioneering stage star; coming out and being a leader in the campaign for equality; and recent success with mainstream film breakouts as Magneto and Gandalf. His work and influence transcend generations.
At 78, McKellen is introspective, down-to-earth and as compelling as ever. "This intimate and enthralling look" (Time Out) features unprecedented access to private photo albums, a wealth of never-before-seen archival material—including diaries written when he was 12—and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of theatre shows and films, alongside his personal thoughts on a life well lived.
