Funny but sad and ultimately inspiring
3 February 2019 | by mycannonballSee all my reviews

I was too young to watch Gilda live on SNL. But she's an iconic comedic performer, and this moving and funny documentary does a great job of showing you why. It captures the humor and the strength in her spirit and doesn't shy away from the messiness and pain in her life. Funny but sad and ultimately inspiring.
