In this documentary of her acclaimed one-woman revue, the forever fabulous Elaine Stritch fearlessly exposes her bumpy life on and off the boards. From her terrible luck in love, to her interactions with Hollywood legends like Rock Hudson and Judy Garland, to her debilitating battle with alcoholism, Stritch bares it all with honesty and humor. She also showcases her breathtaking voice with its signature rasp, giving performances of some of her best-known songs including "Ladies Who Lunch" (from her iconic turn in Stephen Sondheim's "Company") and "Broadway Baby," a song that must have been written with just her in mind
As an expertly filmed document of Stritch's bravura one-woman show that played to sold-out audiences on Broadway and Londons West End, "At Liberty" constitutes a priceless record of one of the greatest performers of our time. This Emmy Award-winning piece, crafted by a dream team of documentarians (including the great D.A. Pennebaker) captures Stritch's raw, passionate, hilarious and fiercely intelligent essence. Regardless of your interest in theater, you should feel at liberty to let this life-affirming powerhouse of a woman leave a bounce in your step and a vibrant song in your heart.
