Story


Now in her late 80s, Broadway legend Elaine Stritch remains as ferociously funny as ever. In this bold, hilarious and poignant portrait, the uncompromising Tony and Emmy Award-winner is revealed both on and off stage. Candid reflections about her life are punctuated with words from friends (including James Gandolfini, Tina Fey, John Turturro, Hal Prince, George C. Wolfe, Nathan Lane and Cherry Jones) and archival footage that showcases some of the great moments from her career. Whether dominating the stage, tormenting Alec Baldwin on the set of 30 Rock, or sharing her struggles with aging, diabetes and alcoholism, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me reaches beyond the icon's brassy exterior and reveals an inspiring portrait of a complex woman and artist.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..an extraordinary documentary that is like a piercing, poignant intimacy between famous patient and bewildered shrink..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..as much a playdate as portrait, a jumble of salty highlights attesting to the pleasure of her company..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
“..this is a life lived, perhaps not always well, but certainly to the fullest..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
