Cinema Q: The Life Of Reilly

Cinema Q: The Life Of Reilly

USA, 2006, 87 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Biopic, Documentary, Gay/Lesbian
Language: English

If, in 1940, you had a lobotomized aunt, an institutionalized father, a racist mother, and were the only gay kid on the block, what do you think the odds would be that you'd end up a Tony winner, a staple of television and a generational icon? The cliché goes that truth is stranger than fiction; in this case, it's also funnier and more heartbreaking. Charles Nelson Reilly, famous for his game show innuendos and X Files guest appearances, takes us through his bizarre, star-studded, tragic, hilarious and ultimately amazing life with a potent blend of tenderness and quick one-liners. An adaptation of Mr. Reilly's acclaimed one-man show, photographed for the screen during his final two performances in North Hollywood, California.

DIRECTOR: Frank L. Anderson, Barry Poltermann
US Distributor: Civilian Pictures
