Love, Antosha is a collage documentary tribute to the late Anton Yelchin, the promising young actor whose career was abruptly ended when a freak accident took his life at the age of 27. The talented Soviet-born performer was conversant in acting, photography, and music, spoke several languages, and, according to the testimony of those interviewed, left a legacy of love for family, friends, and people in general. Director Garret Price premiered the film at Sundance; it will receive a limited release.
