If nothing else, this is an essay in charisma.” - Hollywood ReporterTony Kushner is a Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning playwright. Wrestling With Angels tells of his relentlessly creative spirit and how he became an outspoken activist - a compassionate spokesperson for outsiders - and one of today's most important and entertaining playwrights. At its core, the film unravels the mystery of creativity, its sources and Kushner's compelling plays (Angels in America, Caroline or Change, Homebody/Kabul), which are always set against the moral and political concerns of our times. The story of Kushner as an artist and activist is also the story of a father and son relationship. Loquacious, hilarious, fiercely political and deeply spiritual, Kushner's work has always sought to find artistic expression for deep and fundamental truths.
