Entertainment Reviews:

RogerEbert.com - 07/08/2016
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his is a striking piece of work. Lear is a great camera subject, a brilliant storyteller and so emotionally transparent that you might not mind if he went on for another half-hour..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/14/2016
"The brisk documentary, co-directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, certainly serves as a fine, celebratory introduction into the career of Lear, the prolific show runner..."
New York Times - 07/07/2016
"There are lessons to be gleaned about creativity and longevity from NORMAN LEAR: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU, Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s assured documentary portrait of that influential television producer."
Washington Post - 07/21/2016
"It’s impossible to overstate the importance of television producer Norman Lear to American culture....He deserves a special place in the TV firmament, having taken the medium out of the realm of skits and fluffy sitcoms and placing it squarely within the purview of politics at their most contentious and caustically personal."

Product Description:

This documentary profiles legendary TV mogul Norman Lear, best known for creating a number of groundbreaking 1970s sitcoms (ALL IN THE FAMILY, SANFORD AND SON, THE JEFFERSONS, ONE DAY AT A TIME, MAUDE, GOOD TIMES) that plumbed the cultural changes roiling the country. The film uses the recurring motif of a theater filled with television screens as a means to explore Lear's personal life, his work, and his impact on American society. Directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady.
