Waiting for the Moon

Jill Godmilow

This smartly written drama based on the relationship between literary maven Gertrude Stein and her companion Alice B. Toklas is more of an imaginary portrait than a docudrama. The story is derived from impressions filmmaker Jill Godmilow gathered from Stein’s writing, ingeniously weaving fact with fiction to create a fascinating bio-drama. During a three-month period in 1936, Stein and Toklas play host to literary giants such as Ernest Hemingway and some of the most renowned names in 20th-century literature. Featuring an impressive cast, Waiting for the Moon tells the story of a unique friendship and evokes the ambiance of a fascinating moment in literary history.
