Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen allows his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time. With this unprecedented access, Emmy®-winning, Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Robert Weide follows the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography.
Features interviews with: actors Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Penelope Cruz, John Cusack, Larry David, Mariel Hemingway, Scarlett Johansson, Julie Kavner, Diane Keaton, pals Dick Cavett and Martin Scorsese; and others.
“Robert Weide’s speciality is documentaries about American comedians, and to it he returns in this engrossing movie…it’s not a film to be missed.”
Philip French, The Observer
“Either you accept him [Woody Allen] as this eccentric, creative genius, or you alienate him as too foreign, too quirky, too whiny and too neurotic. Either way, Woody Allen does not care. This is a guy who really lives to make a statement.”
Danielle Fox, The Huffington Post
“An intimate, affectionate and warmly celebratory study of the great comedian and filmmaker Woody Allen”
