The late Leonard Nimoy’s son, Adam Nimoy, examines the enduring appeal of Star Trek’s Mr. Spock in this documentary feature narrated by Chris Pine (the actor who plays Capt. James T. Kirk in the most recent movie remakes of Star Trek). Much of the film is actually narrated by Leonard Nimoy as well, who jumped at the chance to work with his son.
Adam Nimoy’s original plan was to focus specifically on his father’s Vulcan character, Mr. Spock. But when Nimoy died in 2015, his son widened the scope of his film to encompass his entire life and career. The result is a lively, often hilarious collection of talking heads that includes fans and actors from the original and current incarnations of “Star Trek,” plus footage of Leonard Nimoy in the numerous roles that were overshadowed by his most famous creation.
