This past Monday in Beverly Hills, The Knockturnal had the pleasure of attending a screening of the inspirational and powerful documentary, Gleason.
Strips of food and cocktail camaraderie amid a gorgeous display of the Lincoln Center Square helped ease the banality of the rainy outdoors. Quaint. Fulfilling. However, the festivities couldn’t mitigate the vestige of existential woe. For if one thing is certain in this life, it is that the universe can be so, utterly cruel.
“Gleason” manages to be sad and inspirational as well as being a call to action without disrupting or manipulating Steve Gleason’s story.
