Encompassing the history as well as the modern actors we know from recent productions, this is a must-watch for anyone interested in the continuing development of storytelling. This isn't for the queers or the critics, it's for anyone who has wondered about who they are seeing on their screen. This documentary goes into why its important for a marginalized character to be played by a marginalized person. It's for people who love shows and movies.
