The official trailer for the upcoming documentary film Sr., which Netflix will distribute, has been revealed. The film will provide an intimate depiction of the life and career of Robert Downey Sr. as a filmmaker and a father.
It follows the actor Robert Downey Jr. as he investigates his connection with his father and incorporates scenes from Avengers: Endgame. Beginning on December 2nd, it will be accessible via streaming.
According to the synopsis, the film “Sr.” is an irreverent portrait of the life, career, and last days of maverick filmmaker Robert Downey Sr., whose rebellious spirit infused decades of counterculture movie-making.
The film broadens the perspective from Downey’s art to his life, which was profoundly linked, including an in-depth investigation of his relationship with his son Robert Downey, Jr.
The film was shot for three years, which is a true honor to Senior’s nonlinear, outlaw-life attitude. It captures his decision to embark on his own parallel and final film production and other aspects of his life.
A reflection on the surreal and sentimental life, Smith’s portrait of a family and an artist is a celebration of making art with no rules while simultaneously tossing out its rulebook.
