MICHIGAN PREMIERE! There’s the beloved image of GILDA RADNER: fearless, passionate, and iconic. And then, there are shades of Radner the public wasn’t privileged to know, beyond her beloved characters on Saturday Night Live: the Radner who struggled with success, fame, relationships, and a battle with ovarian cancer. In Love, Gilda, director LISA D’APOLITO uses rare personal recordings and journal entries to tell Radner’s story in her own words. Along the way, friends and admirers, including AMY POEHLER, CECILY STRONG, LORNE MICHAELS, and a host of others, offer their most cherished memories of this brilliant trailblazer. What results is a touching tribute to and a fascinating contemplation of the comedian’s enduring cultural impact. Love, Gilda offers a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer (and Detroit native) whose greatest role was sharing her story. -Tribeca Film Festival
