McKellen. Tomando partido

On-site Icona

A documentary about the commitment and dedication of Ian McKellen, one of the best actors of all time, to the LGBTI+ movement

Ian McKellen tells the story of his life and successful career from his own perspective and experiences, a story in which the social problems that have concerned the actor play a key role, especially his open defence of LGBTI+ rights. Ever since McKellen revealed his homosexuality at the age of 49, his commitment and struggle for the legal and social equality of homosexual people has been constant and revolutionary. A story that shows the most human face of the legendary Gandalf of The Lord of the Rings, Magneto of the X-Men saga and a prominent Shakespearean actor, about to star as Hamlet at the age of 81.
