“The countless devoted fans of Nimoy and his character virtually guarantee that For the Love of Spock will live long and prosper.”The Hollywood Reporter

As TV and film icons go, it would be near impossible to find one bigger than Mr Spock, the science officer aboard the starship Enterprise in Star Trek. Despite Jewish actor Leonard Nimoy’s long career, he will forever be remembered as the unforgettable, pointy-eared Spock. Nimoy, who died last year, is the subject of this intimate and moving documentary, directed by his son, Adam. It charts his fascinating life and career, and includes one priceless anecdote on the very Jewish origins of the Vulcanic greeting.
