Theatre Actor. Film Star. Political Activist. Inspirational Teacher.
One of Britain’s greatest actors and one might say one of the greatest raconteurs you’ll have the pleasure of encountering, Sir Ian McKellen has forged a career across the big and small screens and in front and behind the camera.
Discover the life story of Sir Ian McKellen (X-Men franchise, Lord of the Rings franchise, Beauty & the Beast), as told by the man himself in this feature-length documentary directed by Joe Stephenson (Chicken). The legend shares his personal stories and thoughts – from his childhood to the present day - as well a wealth of never-before-seen material. Private photo albums, diaries written when he was 12, and behind-the-scenes footage from theatre productions and movies complete this intimate intriguing journey.
