McKellen: Playing The Part

McKellen: Playing The Part
McKellen: Playing The Part

Sir Ian McKellen is both subject and storyteller in this warm and enchanting documentary about his life.


Coming out publicly as a gay man in his late 40s to oppose unjust legislation against gay and lesbian people in the UK, his ongoing work to break the epidemic of silence and repression for young people shows an insight into Sir McKellen as we delve into the origins of his political activism.


Inspiring, profound and dignified, McKellen: Playing the Part is enriching wisdom from a gay elder, and acting master, that is not to be missed.


The film should join the small circle of high-level docs about the acting profession able to inspire newcomers - The Hollywood Reporter
