Gore Vidal has had a profound effect on the worlds of literature, film, politics, historical debate, and the culture wars. Through fascinating archival footage from his legendary on-air career, as well as candid interviews and observational footage captured in his final years, director Nicholas Wrathall chronicles Vidal’s rich and multifaceted life.

Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia offers an engaging perspective of the turbulence of post-war America. With commentary by those who knew him best, including filmmaker/nephew Burr Steers and the late Christopher Hitchens, Wrathall explores the life and work of one of the most fearless critics of our time.
