Synopsis

Canadian Premiere

Becoming Cary Grant reveals a lesser known facet of Cary Grant, one of the greatest icons of golden age Hollywood cinema. Hidden behind his legendary elegance and charm is a young child perturbed by his mother’s internment at a psychiatric hospital, an event which led him to be one of the firsts to use LSD therapy. Inspired by his unpublished autobiography, this film uses first person narration and a vast amount of content filmed by the actor, offering a touching insight into his personal growth, which was filled with richness, but also chaos. Beyond the classic biography, this surprising incursion into Grant’s intimate life abounds with testimonies and unpublished archived materials, allowing us explore the meanderings of his insecurities and accompany him in his quest for his true identity.
