This lovingly-crafted documentary explores the remarkable 50-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, 91, waits to edit it. The task of finishing their life’s work looms before them. With humor and insight, this unique double portrait reveals the work habits, peculiarities and professional joys of these two ferocious intellects at the culmination of a journey that has consumed both their lives and impacted generations of politicians, activists, writers and readers.
“If you love great writing — and especially if you love the messy, idiosyncratic, extremely human process of turning good writing into great writing — I predict that you will love this movie.” —Michelle Nijhuis, Lit Hub “TURN EVERY PAGE is one step away from turning into a Herzogian monument to obsession or plunging into crazed psychodrama. Instead, it is merely a great profile, filled with wit, affection and detailed stories of how the books came to be.” —Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times “A love letter to many aspects of the publishing world that have more or less fallen by the wayside…. What these two aging but vital figures keep telling us, with the spiky affection of their cross-referential camaraderie, is what publishing can be: a holy quest to create something that binds readers the way religion does.” —Owen Gleiberman, Variety
