In her own words, comedienne Gilda Radner looks back and reflects on her life and career. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with her friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong). LOVE, GILDA opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.

"Love, Gilda is a touching reminder of an iridescent star who shined brightly but for far too short a time. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll leave the theater wanting to dive down the YouTube rabbit hole of Gilda Radner."-- Brandon Katz, New York Observer

"God bless Gilda Radner for having the foresight to know that people wanted to know her."-- Kate Erbland, indieWire
