Description
“Star Trek” icon. LGBT activist. Internet sensation. The remarkable life and career of George Takei is chronicled in this crowd-pleasing documentary of camp and conviction. Boldly going from stock player to beloved pop culture figure and gay rights advocate, today Takei is perhaps best known not for his groundbreaking work as Sulu on “Star Trek,” but for regaling his millions of social media followers with his candor and wicked wit. With a contagious optimism, despite a childhood spent in WWII Japanese-American internment camps, Takei’s inspiring second act also finds him and his husband Brad (their playful bickering is a sitcom waiting to happen) as the unlikely poster couple for marriage equality. Touching and hilarious, Takei’s tireless crusade for equal rights is an exhilarating quest for liberty and love.
