The iconic Hollywood actor Montgomery Clift - described in many accounts as “tragically self-destructive” and “tormented” by his sexuality - is brought to new light by his nephew Robert Clift, who uncovers never-before-seen footage and exclusive audio interviews collected by the filmmaker’s father. We gain new insight into the life of the legendary actor who was unashamed of his sexuality, maintained a great sense of humour, and even defied the studio system. Robert’s access to interviews with family and close friends of Monty turn against the faulty narrative made popular by previous biographies and documentaries that considered him “the slowest suicide in Hollywood history.”

Thoroughly well-researched and edited, Robert—along with co-director Hillary Demmon—brings to the surface a personal account of his uncle Monty and his father Brooks Clift that forces us to ask: Who do we trust to write our history? Making Montgomery Clift brings the star out of the archive, and further out of the closet.
