Producer-director Garret Price’s must-see 2019 documentary Love, Antosha is now streaming for free over on TubiTV. The film focuses on the life and career of the late Fright Night and Green Room actor Anton Yelchin. It premiered at Sundance and was released in August 2019.
I finally checked it out last night with the little lady and we both enjoyed it beginning to end.
Check out the trailer below.
From a prolific career in film and TV, Anton Yelchin left an indelible legacy as an actor. Through his journals and other writings, his photography, the original music he wrote, and interviews with his family, friends, and colleagues, this film looks not just at Anton’s impressive career, but at a broader portrait of the man. Born in the former Soviet Union to a family of artists, Anton and his parents came to the U.S. when he was six months old. He started acting at nine. He had a genuine curiosity and love for people, for art, and for family. And a willingness to explore, and be open with, the darker parts of himself. Love, Antosha explores his successes and his struggles and lets viewers get to know the person the world was cheated from seeing grow old.
Rated R for language, some sexual content, and nudity, the film sports a 96% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Using raw materials left behind by its subject, Love, Antosha takes a thoughtful — and powerful — look at a life and career cut short.
