Ever since I heard about this documentery I wanted to see it. So when it came to Netflix I was over joyed to be able to see it. The documentery about George Takei – Mr Sulu. We get to see his everyday life, him talking about Star Trek & his entire career. His fight for the right for same sex marriage.
We meet George’s former co-workers, partner & sister talking about him and his career. It’s was amazing to watch this documentery, hearing from Mr Takei himself – his thoughts, his comments and him talking about when he was a child and him and his family was in a Japanese-American camp due to Japanese attacking Pear Harbor. I felt heartbreak when talked about it. I can’t begin to imagine how a child can come out of that fine. But, there will always be some scars left after an event like that.
His parents always knew that he would grow up to be an actor, when George was a child he would ask adult “I know twinkle little star, want me to sing it for you?” He will talk about him being gay and not coming out yet and his relationship with his partner Brad. They are adorable together – after such a long time together they still show love in their own special way as any couple does.
If you are a Star Trek fan and Mr Sulu fan, then this doc. is mean for you.
In this documentery you see people like George & Brad Takei, Nancy Takei (sister), Walter Koenig, William Shatner, John Cho, Michelle Nichols, Leonard Nimoy and many more.
