Persistent. Lucky. Sly. Audacious. Jerry Weintraub has been called a lot of things as one of Hollywood’s longest working executives. Though he will use any means to get to the top of the game, he’s experienced both its highs and lows during an enviable five-decade career. Weintraub presents a portrait of a man who was taught early in life to work hard and dream big, to pursue his visions and to never take no for an answer.
The documentary features interviews with Weintraub’s friends in political and Hollywood circles, including former president George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Ellen Barkin, James Caan, Elliott Gould and Andy Garcia among others.
