A documentary about the remarkable fifty-year relationship between two literary legends, writer Robert Caro and his longtime editor Robert Gottlieb. Now 86, Caro is working to complete the final volume of his masterwork, The Years of Lyndon Johnson; Gottlieb, 90, waits to edit it. The task of finishing their life’s work looms before them. Turn Every Page: The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb is an intimate look into artistry, mortality, antagonism, and the transformative power of creative collaboration.
Directed by Gottlieb’s daughter Lizzie, the film is a literati dream – as Caro tours Johnson’s roots in the Texas hill country and pecks away 24/7 on his Smith Corona Electra 210, locking horns with Gottlieb on matters big and small. A vigorous debate over Caro’s use of semicolons is a hilarious highlight.
