Actor and filmmaker James Keach has taken up the reins in directing a documentary of the country-music legend's life as he perseveres and adjusts to the later stages of Alzheimer's—all while still playing complex guitar chords and pouring his soul as best he can into each melody.
Glen Campbell faces these trials with commendable resolve and a sense of humor that inspired Keach. The film covers Campbell's 2011-2012 "Goodbye Tour", in which he played 151 shows across the globe, but also the personal aspects of his day-to-day life with the deteriorating disease.
"The film doesn't flinch from the harsh realities of Alzheimer's, showing Campbell losing his temper at times with loved ones and frequently falling back on the jovial manner that made him an engaging star of "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour" variety series that ran on CBS from 1969-71." (LA Times)
The film ends with Glen's last recording session, in 2013, featuring a new song which powerfully displays his love for the people who have been there for him, entitled "I'm Not Gonna Miss You".
