A look at the legendary director. An artistic trailblazer, Mike Nichols (November 6, 1931 - November 19, 2014) won an Oscar, a Grammy, four Emmys, nine Tonys, three BAFTAs and many other awards as a director, actor, writer, producer and comedian. As the legendary comedy duo Nichols and May, Nichols and his partner Elaine May revolutionized comedy in the late 1950s and early 1960s. May is the director of this documentary.
With charm and wit, Nichols discusses his life and 50-year career as a performer and director. The program features new interviews with his friends and colleagues, including Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Alec Baldwin, Paul Simon, Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane and many others, conducted by film, TV and theater producer Julian Schlossberg. Schlossberg also conducted an exclusive interview with Nichols for the film. The documentary features insights and highlights from Nichols' acclaimed films, including The Graduate, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Catch 22, Silkwood, Biloxi Blues, Working Girl, Angels In America and Charlie Wilson's War, as well as his theatrical productions Barefoot in the Park, Luv and The Odd Couple.
