McKellen: Play­ing The Part

The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

A fas­ci­nat­ing doc­u­men­tary which re­minds us there is far more to Ian McKellen than his star turn as Gan­dalf in The Lord

Of The Rings tril­ogy. Prov­ing that one man in his time does in­deed play many parts, this film, built on a 14-hour interview with the Bri­tish ac­tor, traces McKellen’s life from his early child­hood through a ca­reer in­volv­ing film, the­atre and tele­vi­sion. A rare in­sight into a life well-lived.
