Super/Man: The Christopher Reeve Story.

Rating: CTC
Duration: 106 mins
Director: Ian Bonhôte & Peter Ettedgui.
Cast: Christopher Reeve
An intensely moving portrait of actor, father, and activist Christopher Reeve – before and after his accident – as recounted by family and friends. Sundance 2024.

Directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui (who also worked together on the BAFTA nominated McQueen) move between Reeve’s spectacular career rise (at just 24, winning the iconic role in Richard Donner’s 1977 Superman) and his 1995 horse-riding accident, subsequent paralysis, and disability advocacy. The filmmakers make great use of intimate home footage and interviews with Reeve’s partner and three children (who continue his campaign), as well as his Hollywood friends, including Susan Sarandon, Glenn Close and Robin Williams. Largely narrated by Reeve, from extensive audio recordings made during his lifetime, this moving film received a standing ovation at its Sundance 2024 opening night premiere.
