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.

“A tender-hearted, intimately crafted ode to the late Gilda Radner providing her a posthumous chance to tell her story in her own words.”
– Olivia Aylmer, Vanity Fair

“A SMART DOCUMENTARY. The footage of Radner’s work has an emotional charge that feels electrifyingly present-tense.”
– David Edelstein, New York Magazine
