"Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me" on DVD from IFC!

A ferocious, funny and poignant portrait of the one-of-a-kind Broadway legend still belting out Sondheim numbers at age 87, the documentary tribute ELAINE STRITCH: SHOOT ME showcases the brash, uncompromising Tony and Emmy winner and cabaret star both onstage and off. The film captures the actress-singer’s immeasurable charm, acerbic wit and impressive accomplishments with candid footage and interviews with friends and collaborators, including Sondheim, Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Nathan Lane, John Turturro and James Gandolfini. Stritch’s career has spanned generations, from landmark plays and musicals, including William Inge’s Bus Stop, Noel Coward’s Sail Away and Sondheim’s Company (in which she immortalized the song "The Ladies Who Lunch"), to long-running New York cabaret engagements and a recurring role as Alec Baldwin’s mother in the NBC hit 30 Rock. The 2001 one-woman show Elaine Stritch at Liberty has stood as the summation of her life and career - until now, with this "brave and inspiring" (Stephen Holden, The New York Times) portrait of an American treasure. The IFC Films theatrical hit received glowing reviews. "Cheers to a movie as gloriously entertaining and bluntly honest as the lady herself. Everybody rise," praised Rolling Stone. "An irresistibly entertaining documentary that captures Stritch during what she unsentimentally calls ’almost post-time,’ " said Jake Coyle of The Associated Press. "Generous and hilarious," said the New York Post.

On DVD June 24!
