Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin, The

Genre(s): Comedy, Drama

The latest from director Jennifer Kroot (To Be Takei) celebrates the life of beloved storyteller Armistead Maupin, best known for his newspaper column-turned-novels, Tales of the City. Maupin’s own life tales are lesser known and just as interesting as his fiction. He tells his story with the help of some friends (including Laura Linney, Sir Ian McKellen and Olympia Dukakis) to offer a disarmingly candid look at his journey from conservative upbringings in the south, serving multiple tours in the Vietnam War and later life in the Castro District of San Francisco. The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin weaves together the history of an iconic gay rights pioneer in a tender, lively, and at times laugh out loud hilarious fashion.
