Robert Downey Sr. is getting his documentary due. The late actor and filmmaker’s son Robert Downey Jr. profiles his father in the upcoming Netflix film ‘Sr.’, which explores Downey Sr.’s life and his impact on both Hollywood and the life of his son.
“I just remember that cacophony of creativity, but mostly laughter,” Downey Jr., 57, says in the trailer that dropped Monday.
Directed by American Movie documentarian Chris Smith, Sr. is “a lovingly irreverent portrait of the life, career and last days of maverick filmmaker Robert Downey Sr., whose rebellious spirit infused decades of counterculture movie-making,” according to an official synopsis.
The synopsis goes on to say that Sr. “widens the lens from Downey’s art to the life with which it was deeply intertwined, including an intimate examination of his relationship with son Robert Downey Jr.”
