This affectionate documentary about Gilda Radner utilizes her private audio recordings to help narrate her story, from childhood through the Saturday Night Live years, to her ultimate happiness with Gene Wilder and the cancer that tragically cut her life short. Packed with great clips of her SNL characters, including Roseanne Rosannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner, the film features interviews with many of her contemporaries, including Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Schaffer and Martin Short, as well as later SNL generations inspired by Gilda: Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong. It’s a moving tribute, filled with honesty and whimsy, like its subject. Producer/Director: Lisa D’Apolito. (US 2018) 86 min.
