Synopsis

A reluctant star, Morgan Freeman is a dignified and wry, humble yet confident journeyman actor who suddenly found himself at overnight success at 50, an age when many actors are forced into retirement. His aversion to celebrity is as powerful as his passion for acting, so few are aware that his off-screen life has been as dramatic and colourful as his on-screen exploits. Growing up in the depression, Freeman never experienced racism until he moved to Chicago. Back in Mississippi he stumbled on what would become his life's passion when a teacher encouraged Morgan to channel is show-off energy into performing. After a brief stint as a fighter pilot, Freeman headed for Hollywood, only to be knocked back. He moved to New York where he spent years working his way up the theatrical ladder. Along the way, Freeman was out of work, battled alcohol abuse and the break-up of his marriage and nearly left acting - only to be save by Robert Redford and a pimp named Fast Black, a role that earned him his first Oscar nomination.

In this compelling autobiography of this indomitable actor, Tracy opens the door to his hard-scrabbled existence that now informs his work and its signature grace and world-weary wisdom. A must for film fans.
