Movie Review: To Be Takei


This movie is a documentary about George Takei's life. George Takei played Lt. Sulu in the original Star Trek. Takei is a survivor of the mass deportation and incarceration of American citizens of Japanese descent. He spent a part of his childhood in a concentration camp in the mid-West and then in California. He returned to Los Angeles, graduated from high school and went onto graduate from UCLA in Theatre.

The documentary showcases Takei's life and all the different pieces that make him him -- the most notable being his gay rights advocacy.
